Katherine is the cofounder and spokeswoman for Save Women's Sport Australasia, She was motivated to join forces with the women in NZ when she realised no one in Australia was speaking up for the little girls, teenagers and women whose rights to fair play and safety in sport were being impacted by inclusion policies that replace the category of sex in favour of gender identity.
Katherine grew up in Australia playing a wide variety of sports such as athletics, tennis, swimming, hockey, water-skiing and snow skiing. Now the mother of three little girls who play seven sports between them, Katherine is deeply concerned at the erasure of sex in policy and legislation, for sport and more broadly, and what that means for her own daughters and other girls and women.
Katherine was admitted as a lawyer by the NSW Supreme Court after completion of the University of Sydney's Legal Profession Admission Board Diploma of Law. She has also been granted a Bachelor of Arts in Public Communication and a Graduate Certificate in Editing and Publishing from University of Technology, Sydney. Katherine studied for a year in the USA at University of Miami's School of Communication where she was on the Dean's List.
Prior to her law studies, Katherine had a career in the USA and Australian wine industries and has qualified as a Level II Sommelier with the International Guild of Sommeliers. After a few years based in San Francisco as the National Sales and Marketing Manager for an organic and biodynamic boutique winery, Katherine returned to Australia where she was a Key Account Manager for the world's largest listed wine company, Treasury Wine Estates.
