Hi! My name is Kylee Austin, and I am in my final year of my DPT program at Northern Arizona University. Although my most important job is being a mother to my three sons Tristan (7), and twins Keegan and Kayden (5), I look forward to graduating in December and becoming a pelvic health physical therapist. I currently live in Mesa, AZ, and enjoy traveling, eating, reading, and spending time with friends and family. I am passionate about women’s health and helping mamas live their best lives!

I was honored to be selected as a 2023 APTA Association Leadership Scholar. To be included in this group of high-achieving, future leaders from across the nation is such an amazing opportunity for connection and growth. As the current APTA Az Student SIG president, I hope to bring the leadership skills I learn in this group to immediate use. I also hope to foster student and PT involvement within my state and grow with the APTA organization in the future.
