Rhae Kiessling

Rhae Kiessling

Rhae Kiessling joined the Alliance O&P staff in May 2016 as a full-time Prosthetic/Orthotic Resident. She received her Texas Licensure after completing her Masters degree in Prosthetics and Orthotics from UT Southwestern, December 2015. Rhae has a lengthy scientific background that includes a Bachelors in Biology/Chemistry, a Masters of Molecular and Cellular Biology research from Southern Methodist University, and a first career teaching advanced sciences at JJ Pearce High School in Richardson, TX.

In 2013, Rhae found the Orthotic and Prosthetic profession coincidentally while she was mentoring high school chemistry students to pursue careers in the sciences, taking a group to tour the campus of UT Southwestern Health Professions. Her own eyes were opened to the creative blend of art and science and the lifelong relationships involved in Orthotic and Prosthetic care and instead put in her own application to graduate school!  She is delighted to say the rest is history and is optimistic about her future. Rhae is working towards her American Board Certification in Prosthetics and Orthotics, projected for Spring 2018. She lives locally with her husband and baby boy, Connor.
