Director/ Accredited Exercise Physiologist-
Katherine opened her practice- KB Exercise Physiology in 2007 and essentially through word of mouth, she has seen it grow rapidly. She is passionate about the use of ‘exercise as medicine’ within the Swan Hill community and her primary goal is to assist men and women of all ages to live their most healthy life.
Katherine holds Bachelor of Applied Science (Human Movement) & Graduate Diploma in Exercise Rehabilitation degrees from the University of Ballarat. With sixteen years experience in the industry, Katherine has worked with many client groups over the years, specialising in chronic disease management and women's health conditions.
Katherine raised the profile and importance around women’s health within the mallee region. This is a contributing factor to her success in her private practice and she continues to support women through all stages of life- including teens, antenatal and postnatal care, perimenopause, menopause and post menopausal years.
She also offers an outreach service travelling to Balranald fortnightly, which she has done so for 14 years.
Katherine has been on the advisory panels of a number of organisations including Deakin Clinical Exercise Physiology Advisory Panel for Deakin University and more recently the Far West Clinical Advisory Council for the Western NSW Primary Health Network. She has also previously presented on private practice in a regional town at an ESSA symposium.
