Kayla Katzman, PT, DPT

"My name is Kayla and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I was born and raised in Santa Clara in the south bay area. I am a First-Generation student and I completed my undergraduate schooling at Chapman University, where I majored in Kinesiology and minored in Psychology. I graduated in June 2021 from the UCSF/SFSU DPT program. During graduate school I was involved in various community service and health/wellness programs since giving back to the community is a large passion of mine. As a resident in the UCSF Orthopedic Residency for Physical Therapy I look forward to improving my clinical knowledge and skills, and passing it down to the future generation of DPT students. During my free time I enjoy cuddles with my dog, investigating Yelp for the best places to eat, and spending time with family."
