She worked as a musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapist and Emergency Department Physiotherapy practitioner assessing and managing acute injuries and pain.
Kate has a special interest in women’s and children’s health and is completing additional training at Kirrawee Family Practice in 2023 to extend her skills in managing women throughout pregnancy and post-partum. As a mum herself, Kate understands first-hand the challenges faced by new parents, and this further developed her interest in perinatal medicine. She is passionate about promoting children’s health and development and enjoys collaborating with specialist paediatric teams for the management of children with chronic health conditions.
Kate grew up in the Sutherland Shire and when she is not at work you’ll likely find her at the beach with her twin daughters. When she gets the free time, she also enjoys pilates and walks in The National Park.
