Lauren Knoten, PA-C

Physician Assistant

Lauren was born and raised in the Tampa Bay area. She attended University of South Florida and graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences and went on to complete a Masters of Medical Science in Physician Assistant Studies in 2016 from Nova Southeastern University in Orlando.

Lauren’s early career has been focused on Emergency Medicine in Tampa and Ocala over the past 7 years, with a year in Urgent Care as well. She is trained, experienced and skilled in minor and advanced procedures and managing acute and critically ill patients.

Her passion has always been making patients and families feel confident, calm, and safe in the midst of stressful moments. Lauren thrives in moments where she is able to provide comfort and understanding. She values the role that feeling heard and seen plays in physical and spiritual healing. The highest compliment is being consistently recognized for making sure everyone is fully informed and in agreement with care and plan.

When not working, Lauren and her husband Jordan love spending days on the water or golfing, and sitting on their back porch with their plethora of rescue animals. He works as a charter captain and spends time in the Keys running sailboats for the Boy Scouts. Their son just graduated high school and is an avid wakeboarder and many afternoons and weekends are spent supporting him in his love for the sport. Having moved to Hernando Beach a few years ago, Lauren has been seeking an opportunity to serve the community in way that aligns with her personal and professional priorities of character, consistency, excellence and education.

She looks forward to joining the highly regarded family at Divinity and contributing to their shared values of trust, honesty and integrity. Divinity’s commitment to continuing high level education and training is renowned in the community. Lauren feels blessed to have the opportunity to join a team that is passionate about serving their community and helping everyone feel their best in body, mind and spirit.

Lauren has completed a series of intense training on all aesthetic services including: Allergan, Galderma, Cynosure Lasers, InMode’s Morpheus8 & Cartessa’s CoolPeel/Tetra Laser. She has completed a rigorous injectable training with our owner, National Allergan Trainer Holly Boyd. We are proud to say that she has excelled in all of our services and has been an amazing addition to Team Divinity.
