For over a decade Kathy has specialised in metabolic surgery within private practice. In 2022, she completed a Bachelor of Psychology (with distinction) aimed to consolidate previous clinical and sports nutrition experience with behaviour change.

Kathy goes on a journey with the person to develop a more positive relationship with food and support them with the long and sometimes challenging road after weight loss surgery.

During her 4 years as the dietitian representative on the ANZMOSS Board, she founded and coordinated both a national Integrative Health Roadshow in 2021 and the ANZMOSS Integrative Health Professional Course in 2023.

She has chaired and presented at scientific conferences as well as spoken on ABC radio on metabolic surgery.  She now has combined forces with Events by Shine to produce education events in metabolic surgery.

Past community projects include writing a cookbook for the elderly and those with dementia, developing a corporate based healthy eating program, and joined forces with The City of Gold Coast to conduct cooking classes.

In her spare time Kathy enjoys cycling, taking her dog walking, and cooking up a storm for loved ones.
