Katherine began her career as a naturopath in 2007 and in 2011 founded her first clinic, Shift at Brisbane Natural Health. From a handful of practitioners, Shift has grown to be one of Australia’s most successful health practices. In 2015 Katherine launched a worldwide first – natural health memberships that encompassed multiple practitioner care, educational resources and results tracking. Her signature memberships have disrupted the traditional model of health care and are now available worldwide as a virtual service.
If we could describe Katherine’s impact in two words it would be inspiring evolution. Katherine inspires and moves others to see what they need to shift in order to evolve into the next version of themselves.
It is Katherine’s creative outlook and entrepreneurial spirit that has made her a well-respected voice on the topic of health care in Australia. She is a go-to source for comment on health by the media and is featured frequently in publications like Good Health and Nature and Health magazines, has been interviewed on Channel 9, Channel 10 and Channel 7 and is frequently called to appear on radio.
Katherine is also an advocate for domestic violence, having grown up in a household where violence was a part of her daily life. This leads her to turn to drug use, and at the age of fifteen Katherine ended up addicted to heroin, homeless and living on the streets of Melbourne. Her recovery journey is something that Katherine believes has enriched the tapestry of her life and she brings this insight into the work that she does with others. Katherine is an avid supporter of Women’s Legal Service, which help to support women in domestic violence situations.

Katherine has presented to a wide variety of audiences. She has hosted workshops in a corporate setting, facilitated full-day health retreats, presented on stage to hundreds of entrepreneurs, presented Australia wide seminar series, and has been a keynote speaker at natural health symposiums.
Katherine can tailor her presentations to suit nearly any audience, whether it be those that are already health aware or those that need some basic health inspiration that lands and inspires them to make a change.
Katherine also has spoken at many business events about entrepreneurship, and in particular, disrupting traditional industries with her unique model of health care.
