About Kate

Kate is an Australian elite athlete, keynote speaker and psychologist who knows no limits when it comes to adversity and achievement. Kate was born without a right hand, and at the age of 8, she was already making her mark receiving awards for violin and equestrian achievements, including the Melbourne Junior Achiever Award. Kate went on to represent Australia at several international equestrian events, including the World Equestrian Games in 2010.

The experience of falling short of two Paralympic games, the traumatic death of her mother, and critical illness of her equestrian mount, Kate decided to set her eyes on a new focus. In late 2014, Kate made the dramatic change to triathlon.

The results of this transition has been astonishing with Kate winning Bronze at 2015 World Para-triathlon Championships and several gold and podium finishes on the ITU para-triathlon circuit to date. Kate also successfully competed at 2016 Rio Paralympics in triathlon, placing 5th in the world, with less than two years in the sport.

Kate also holds a Master of Organisational Psychology, and is passionate about assisting individuals, teams and organisations to operate at an elite level. Kate does not accept defeat lightly and sees hardship as a driving force to set higher goals. Kate leverages her wellspring of energy and passion to motivate and inspire others. Her practices and services utilise evidence based approaches and techniques that have evolved from rigorous scientific research.
