Kate’s background

A question I am often asked is ‘how did you becomes a Dietitian – what sparked your interested in food?’.

I decided to study and work as a Dietitian as I was involved in State and National level Athletics and Cross Country and personally experienced how much of an impact diet can have on performance.

I experienced my own nutritional issues and worked with a Sports Dietitian to successfully get myself back on track and performing well. 

I personally experienced how much of an impact food choices have on fuelling for a training session or races, optimising recovery, and eating well to get myself through a busy daily routine. Even if it only improves your performance by 1-2%, that could be the difference between beating your PB or goal time, or crossing the finish line in 1st place instead of 4th.

Kate is a keen runner and has completed the 2015 Gold Coast Marathon, 2016, 2017 & 2018 Gold Coast Half Marathons, 2016 Melbourne Marathon, 2017 Brisbane Half Marathon, 2017 Tough Mudder 18km plus numerous other running events.  She has a huge interest in nutrition for endurance sports, and knows first hand how important the right nutrition plan is.
