DEB LAMKIN – RD/LD, CDE
Dietitian | Clinic Coordinator
Deb Lamkin R.D., L.D. has practiced in the fields of nutrition and research since graduating from the College of Nutrition and Health Science at Minnesota State University, Mankato, with a B.S. in Dietetics.
Deb began her career as a Dietitian at St. Michael’s/Hillcrest Hospital in Oklahoma City. She then went on to practice private nutrition counseling as an independent contractor with Bannister & Associates, providing menu planning and individual nutrition consultation specific to chronic disease management. Deb then joined COR Clinical Research as a Clinical Research Coordinator, where she was Lead Coordinator for several years before joining her husband, Dr. Brian Lamkin, in creating The Lamkin Clinic.
Deb has been intricately involved in designing education and nutrition protocols as well as menus for optimum health for patients at The Lamkin Clinic. Deb Lamkin is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian (RD/LD). Deb’s passion is to help empower her clients to lead healthier lifestyles and stems from her diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis (R.A.). After being diagnosed at the age of 30, Deb knew there must be a better way to take care of herself rather than take medications. She began to further her education by studying functional nutrition. After she was able to heal her condition following functional nutrition protocols and immunotherapy, Deb was more committed than ever to helping patients reverse disease through nutrition. She has since helped her patients heal their bodies naturally by showing them how optimal nutrition and lifestyle changes help improve health and wellbeing. Deb is also a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) and holds a certificate of training in adult, adolescent, and pediatric weight management from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. She has been successfully helping her clients lose weight, decrease medications, and live healthier lifestyles through the programs she and her husband, Dr. Brian Lamkin have developed and implemented at the Lamkin Clinic.
