Kate grew up in Freeling, and obtained her Bachelor of Applied Science in Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia in 1992.
She now lives with her partner and blended family of 3 kids on a farm at Gomersal.
Since graduating, Kate has worked solely in the country areas of Lameroo, Loxton and Waikerie before joining Barossa Physiotherapy in 2011.
Kate has a "hands-on" approach to physiotherapy, relishing the challenge of the complex patient.
Her special interests are the management of the jaw, and pelvic dysfunction.
She enjoys working in the country "because you never know what challenge is going to walk through the door".
