Kaylee Nelson, PA-C

Physician Assistant

I was born and raised in Fountain Hills, Arizona. I attended Arizona State University, where I received my bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences and then moved to Tampa to attend South University for my master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies. I moved back here after school because of how much I love the desert and mountains as well as the close proximity to the forests of Northern Arizona and the beaches of Rocky Point, Mexico. During PA school I had a rotation in interventional pain management that I unexpectedly fell in love with, so I became drawn to LifeQuest’s mission of healing patients through physical medicine and rehab.
