Keshika completed a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy Degree at the University of Kwa Zulu Natal in 1998. She followed her passion of working with people with disabilities and entered the clinical field. Her passion was in the field of psychiatry and after heading up the department at Tara Hospital, she was head hunted to join the Wits Occupational Therapy Department as a lecturer. During this time, apart from the inherent tasks, she also attended and presented at an international congress in Australia. She then left the academic world to enter the corporate field and worked with various companies managing disabilities in the workplace and advising on illness prevention and health promotion strategies.

She then took the bold step to continue her career as a private practitioner and now consults to corporate companies including Progression. Her role involves participation in disability awareness and sensitisation training to corporates, environmental and ergonomic evaluations, functional capacity evaluations for insurance companies and medico legal work for the Road Accident Fund. She has been trained in various international protocols which she utilises as part of her assessment and treatment processes.
