Kathryn was born in New Zealand to English parents. She grew up with a keen interest in sport, participating in athletics, competitive gymnastics and netball through most of her childhood.
She chose to do a degree in Podiatry due to an interest in things medical and her sporting background. She graduated in 1996 with a Bachelor of Health Science (Podiatry) at the top of her class and went on to work in a private practice in Wellington New Zealand and assist with clinical teaching at the polytechnic she graduated from.
After a short career break from Podiatry, Kathryn decided to move to the U.K. and live and work in London , staying for 5 yeras.
It was here that she decided to go back to working in Podiatry, where her biomechanical and surgical skills were used to their optimum. She also taught clinical podiatry at the prestigious (now closed) London Foot Hospital. Kathryn was also lucky enough to be able to volunteer at the London Marathon as a medic in 2005 which was a fantastic experience.
After extensive travelling, Kathryn arrived in Australia in 2006 to start work in private practice at Blacktown Podiatry.
Kathryn is an active sports participant and avid fan. 2016 will see the birth of her second child, during which she will be taking 12 months maternity leave.
