About Kat.

Kat is a dynamic and unique package – a Dietitian, Primary School Teacher and Yoga Instructor, with a side of long distance running and African drum and dance!

Nutrition.

Over more than a decade, Kat has worked as a Dietitian in Australia, and around the world – spending time embracing life in the Pacific Islands, Europe, Canada and West Africa. She has highly developed skills in many areas of nutrition, including Public Health, Indigenous Health, and individual and group counselling and education.

Kat spent time living in the red heart of the country – Alice Springs, and was privileged to work alongside many remote Indigenous communities of Central Australia. She found joy supporting multiple community-led initiatives driven from the local schools, and at this time decided to head back to study herself. 

Education.

While living in Sierra Leone, West Africa, Kat really discovered her love for teaching. She worked as a French and English teacher at the American International School, as well as a Health and Nutrition undergraduate lecturer at the Orthodox Christian College of West Africa.
 
Kat undertook her Masters of Teaching & Learning with the vision of eventually combining her true passions – health and education. She has begun to trial this model in schools with early signs that students, and teachers, are increasing knowledge and awareness, better equipped to develop healthy, lifelong behaviours.  

Connection.

Having also completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training, Kat works to include mindful breath, movement and meditation in everything she does. From her online and community-based yoga classes and workshops, to her long-distance running, and in the local school classrooms too! She has noticed the incredible difference that these practices can have on individuals and groups of people, and is excited to continue to develop this space.
