Kate graduated from La Trobe University with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (with Honours) in 2009, and has worked in private practice since. Kate has a strong focus on patient education and empowerment. She enjoys working with people to help them understand their injury, discuss their personal goals and to formulate a management plan.
Kate is committed to ongoing education. She completed a Masters of Physiotherapy (Musculoskeletal) at the University of Melbourne in 2014 and a Masters of Exercise Science (Strength and Conditioning) at Edith Cowen University in 2020.
As a keen endurance runner and rower in her own time, Kate’s areas of special interest include running and rowing related injuries. She also has a special interest in the areas of tendon based pain, injuries of the lower limb and lumbar spine. She has a strong focus on exercise based injury rehabilitation and prevention and taking people out of the treatment room and into the gym.
When she isn’t working, you will probably find Kate rowing on the Yarra, pounding the pavement around Melbourne, or enjoying a smashed avocado brunch at a trendy cafe whilst simultaneously complaining about Melbourne’s expensive housing market.
