- Member of Dietitian’s Australia (DA)
- Dietitian Representative on the board of Australian & New Zealand Metabolic and Obesity Surgery Society (ANZMOSS) 2019-2022
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, as well as produced education events specifically in metabolic surgery nutrition – all aimed to increase the standard of care within the industry. She has chaired and presented at ANZMOSS scientific conferences as well as spoken on ABC radio on metabolic surgery.
Prior to finding her niche in metabolic surgery, her experience began in rehabilitation hospitals, then moved into private practice clinics with some time as an Accredited Sports Dietitian. In addition, 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, participating in various events and cooking up a storm for loved ones.
