Kate was very excited to join the SportsMed NQ team after graduating from James Cook University with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. Growing up in Cairns, Kate has always lived an outdoors, active lifestyle with a history in dance, long-distance running and, more recently, rugby union.
During her studies, she worked with a variety of local netball, AFL and soccer teams which has developed her interest in sporting related injuries. Kate is a qualified Pilates mat and reformer instructor and has a keen interest in the role it plays in rehabilitation programs, particularly in women’s health and pre-and postnatal recovery. She hopes to treat everyone with empathy and help people with chronic pain live an active lifestyle doing all the things they love to do.
In her spare time, you will find Kate and her dog Arnold on a hike or out camping.
