Kate’s well-rounded experience spans across all areas of family law, including complex litigated matters, those with international aspects, complex financial matters, large asset pools, and parenting matters involving high conflict, parental alienation and family violence. Her extensive work throughout Parramatta, Sydney, and the Central Coast has given her a profound understanding of the diversity of family law matters. She has presented at national and international family law conferences and is an active and dedicated member of her profession, providing voluntary educational work and mentorship on the Central Coast.

Kate’s personal life is as colourful as her professional one. A Blue Mountains native, she now embraces the coastal life and has been on the Central Coast for over a decade. Nurturing her wild and wonderful six-year-old, caring for two rescue dogs and fostering a baby orangutan, an elephant and a rhino are part of the daily norm for Kate. Her downtime is filled with the melodies of her vinyl collection, the tranquility of yoga and beach days, and the adventure she finds in bush walking, dancing, books and travel.
