We are proud to welcome the newest member of our ProMed family this month. Kesia Ryan is a practising podiatrist with a special interest in Paediatric Podiatry and Sports Rehabilitation. Kesia is an asset to any team she works with and we are proud to have her as part of the ProMed family!
As an avid hockey and soccer player, Kesia is no stranger to lower limb injuries. From a young age, she suffered from lower limb injuries and it was with the help of a podiatrist that she was also to run onto the field each week pain-free, thus began her interest in podiatry.
Kesia graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor of Podiatry from Southern Cross University and has been practising ever since. Whilst at university, she worked in retail fitting and selling adults and children’s footwear, with a keen interest in those aged 0-18.
Outside of work, Kesia is still a hockey and soccer lover and enjoys spending her time relaxing on Gold Coast beaches, with friends and family, and her four-legged friends!
We sat down with Kesia for some fast fire question to help get to know her!
Fast fire questions!
What are your 2021 goals?
I love to sew. I want to make more clothes in 2021 than what I buy to reduce my fast fashion intake.
What’s your favourite time of the year?
Autumn! Partially because of the weather and partially because my birthday is in Autumn.
What’s one place you have always wanted to travel?
I would love to go to Antarctica. I developed a fascination in year 5 after doing a presentation about Antarctica and that love has never died down completely.
If there is one person you could be for a day who would it be?
I would love to either be the Queen or one of her close staff members. I think it’d be really interesting seeing the behind the scenes things that happen and get answers to all those questions we have about royal life.
What’s your favourite food?
What is your favourite thing about being a podiatrist?
Seeing the look on people’s faces when you relieve their pain. I love helping people and that look of relief can’t be matched. Knowing that they are going to be able to start moving pain free is the best part of each consult!
Kesia will join our team on Tuesdays, Wednesday, Fridays and Saturdays.
Come and give Kesia a warm welcome, and get on top of your foot health today!
