About Carlson

Kayla Carlson completed her bachelor’s degree in respiratory therapy at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota and her master’s in physician assistant studies from Oregon Health & Science University. She is board certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

Kayla worked in Bend as a registered respiratory therapist before returning to school to become a physician assistant. Her favorite rotation was family medicine at St. Charles Madras and she feels honored to join the team as a staff member. In her free time, she can be found enjoying the outdoors with her goldendoodle sidekick, Cosley. Kayla enjoys rock climbing, mountaineering, mountain biking, backpacking, trail running and backcountry skiing. She is thrilled to call Central Oregon her home and to serve the Madras community.
