Kate graduated from La Trobe University with a Bachelor of Speech Pathology and first class Honours in 2011. She first worked as a Speech Pathologist in the acute adult medical setting for three years with a particular focus on neurology and voice disorders. We were then delighted to have Kate accept the invitation to join us at Voice Medicine Australia in 2014 and she has continued to impress with her strong physiological and evidence-based approach to patient care. Kate’s passion for voice stemmed from training and experience in the performing arts and this, coupled with a personal experience of a voice disorder in her teens, drove her to pursue Speech Pathology. She now works as one of our senior clinicians in laryngology and is dedicated to supporting people with various laryngeal conditions to reach their vocal and upper airway goals.
Kate has presented at conferences nationally and continues to have an interest in furthering research within the field of laryngology. She also consults for our sister practice, The Melbourne Voice Analysis Centre, where she contributes speech pathology input to the multidisciplinary stroboscopic evaluation alongside our Laryngologist/ENT Surgeon colleagues, and works at a private practice in Ballarat. She is also a talented florist and mother soon-to-be!
