Lara Green, PA-C
In May 2012, Lara Green began working at Journey Clinic as a Physician Assistant. She sees patients in the clinic and assists in surgery with Dr. Lana Nelson.
"It is a blessing to work in a position that I enjoy with such a great group of people. It is so rewarding to talk with our patients and see their success and improvement whether they have had general surgery, heartburn surgery or weight loss surgery," Lara said.
She graduated from The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center Physician Associate Program with a Master of Health Sciences in December 2002. Lara has worked in the family practice and pre-anesthesia settings before joining Journey Clinic.
She was born and raised in Purcell, Oklahoma and comes from a big family. Her grandfather was one of 16 kids. She has one younger brother. Lara married her high school sweetheart in 2001 and has a fun-loving 5-year-old daughter.
"We were truly blessed with her adoption when she was 9 months old. I love being a Mommy to our little cutie! She has taught us a lot about parenthood that we 'thought' we knew before we were parents," Lara said.
The family also has a dog - a lab mix named Manny. They also enjoy traveling and drag racing. Lara's husband has raced for years and this has taken the family all over the country from Eddyville, Iowa to Bakersfield, California.
Her favorite travel destination is Lake Louise near Banff, Alberta, Canada because it is an amazing display of God's beauty.
