Hi! I'm Kate
For the last ten years, I've amassed an array of advertising, marketing, social media and client service experience in a variety of sectors, I guess you could say I’m a bit of an all-rounder, a true generalist who is able to adapt to new workplaces, job descriptions &/or cultural shifts!
Truth be told, for many years I used to think that being a generalist wasn’t something to celebrate, that I had to focus on one craft and become a specialist but as I have navigated my career, I have come to realise that being good at a broad spectrum of subjects, is in fact a pretty amazing superpower, not a weakness. Generalists compliment Specialists and vice-versa!
As you will see when you navigate over to my CV and recent jobs I have completed, you’ll find a mixed bag of enriching experiences. These experiences have been successfully infused and integrated during key life stages such as becoming a Mother in 2011, 2013 and again in 2018. I will also throw in for good measure that I have experienced redundancy, twice while pregnant (2013, 2017)…character building life chapters to say the least.
If you would like to work with a like-minded soul I can offer you the following services:
In-house &/ virtual marketing assistance
WIX website development
Website content maintenance
I was fortunately to come across Kate's services while I was navigating through the complications of marketing online. She was able to provide a clear and structured plan to help bring my brand to new customers and subsequently, more sales. She has experience and an great understanding of the platform. I highly recommend her skills for bringing your business to the consumer!
Kate has worked with us on our Rip Swim project for the past 2 years. She has proven to be a very valuable resource in her field of expertise. Her knowledge is current and she is always ready to step in and action items at a moments notice. She worked with us to set up accounts, develop target audiences and capitalize on key moments that needed leveraging during our event. I can recommend her highly to anyone looking for assistance with their social media elements.

There's more about Kate....
I have lived in Albert Park & South Melbourne for the past 15 years and I'm still not sure if I can call myself a 'local' yet!
I have three adorable (well in my eyes) kids under the age of 9, PLUS an amazing husband. Life is crazy busy, I live by my Google calendar and am often caffeinated to the hilt.
When I'm not on my laptop sending emails, creating new campaigns or WIX websites for clients, you'll often find me walking around the streets in my activewear, yep I am one of those Mums!
I love to run! Over the years I have done countless triathlons, fun runs, and even a few Half-Ironmans!
I love learning. Every day I need to consume at least one podcast, blog post &/ video.
I am not a big drinker thanks to my 3rd baby who hates sleep, therefore, hangovers are out of the question!
I adore Summer & being a part of the Lakeside Carols Committee (pictured below)
