Having worked in the catering industry for over 20 years, Wayne Ryan is now proudly working as Head Chef at Aveo Newstead Aged Care. Starting his career at a large catering company in Canberra, Wayne went on to cook for various Australian Prime Ministers and sporting teams.
Wayne has spent years working in award-winning restaurants and as the Executive Chef at an Australian University. When Wayne made the move to Brisbane with his family he began working as Catering Manager for a large private college and then at a national bank.
Now working in his favourite job by far, Wayne loves seeing residents faces light up when he cooks quality meals for them every day.
“I like working in aged care because I get to use my skills and I can give back to people that appreciate it every day. It’s great as I get to interact with the residents on a daily basis and make a difference to their quality of life.”
