GET TO KNOW OUR FOUNDER
An entrepreneur with experience
Ryan grew up in the country and started his career early in the community services sector, providing support to people with profound disabilities. From early in his life Ryan knew that caring for people was what he needed to do. Mental health was an early feature in his life with members of his family struggling with their own mental health and addiction problems. Ryan identifies as an LGBTQI person and through taking his own journey to self-acceptance and self-love, whist helping his family on their recovery journey, he solidified his want to care for people. Whilst working in the community services sector he completed a Diploma in Community Services Coordination and later begun providing help for people with disabilities to find work. In doing this he also completed a Diploma of Employment Services. It soon became clear to Ryan that he wanted a more global and recognisable vocation and begun studying to be a Registered Nurse. Now, a number of years later, being qualified as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse and after working a number of years in emergency services, Ryan is looking to provide nursing services, back where it all started for him.
