“My core achievements have developed from being raised in a family business environment. Manners and reputable appearances started early and I inherited my parent’s strong work ethic. To this day I follow the attitude “if a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing properly.”
Kate has forged a multifaceted career as a business woman, model and charity ambassador. Born in iconic Manly and raised in the laid back lifestyle of Darwin with her twin brother, Kate is the quintessential Aussie – with a southern girl’s love of the ocean and a Territory girl’s hunger for the bush.
A creative soul at heart, Kate established her design consultancy business and took her talents to Washington DC and London on completion of her Trade and Bachelor Degree. Her achievements abroad include project collaborations with Ted Baker, Wayne Rooney, Electronic Arts and Nike; with tech startups, health & beauty and military projects making her portfolio complete on home soil.
Better known for her signature smile in Australia’s creative industry, Kate’s career path expanded to modeling in 2008; combining both her love of fashion whilst proudly promoting cancer awareness & animal welfare charities, and being a strong women’s advocate for tackling self esteem and body confidence issues amongst today’s youth. Kate’s client portfolio includes BrasNThings, David Jones, Ben Sherman, Rebel Sport, Underwear of Sweden, Zoggs and St Frock; with covers & lifestyle features in Vogue Australia, Girlfriend Magazine, Cosmopolitan Brides, Oxygen Magazine, NZ Woman’s Weekly, WHITE and NAFA Magazine to name a few.
Described by her peers for being down-to-earth, talented and professional; Kate is highly motivated and always brings a natural sense of style & sophistication to every assignment. Whilst Kate has always enjoyed the glitz and glamour associated with the fashion industry, she identifies highlights in her life far from the makeup chair. Learning to fly at 18 through the Australian Air Force Cadets and gaining her shooting, truck and scuba diving license are up there on the list of hobbies when she kicks off her heels.
Outside of her comfort zone is where the magic happens and Kate is in her element trying something different. She is well travelled & has touched down in more than 30 countries for both work and pleasure. Her greatest travel adventures are those off the beaten track; home-staying on Lake Titicaca and trekking the Inka Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru; scuba diving in Rachai Yai from a makeshift live-a-board in Thailand; stand up paddle boarding in Bora Bora; indulging in the culture and cuisine in the backstreets of Paris and Rome; and ‘getting lost’ in Turkey.
Based in Sydney with her petite four-legged fur child, Maya, Kate combines her distinguished business and model careers with her early morning exercise routine and scouting out restaurants to indulges in life’s little pleasures.
“I religiously follow the healthy mind + healthy body philosophy. You keep fit & fabulous, and you feel incredible inspiring others to lead their own happy & healthy lifestyle!!”
