If you’re ever met Katherine in person, you’d know that she is passionate about health. This has come from a very interesting background where Katherine grew up in Melbourne in a home with domestic violence, leading her to become addicted to heroin and homeless at the age of 15.
With a huge stroke of fate, Katherine was able to get out and move to far north Queensland where she began her remarkable healing journey.
Katherine’s first interest in health care when she met a family in her new home that she bonded with. The mother of the family, Jenny, became like a second mother to her and they spent a lot of time together. Jenny was, however, very sick and had a condition called systemic lupus, a progressive autoimmune disease.
As Katherine grew to know Jenny, she got sicker and sicker and her medication cabinet grew and grew. However, she did not get any better. This series of events sparked something inside of Katherine, where she knew that there had to be a better way for people. She then stumbled across herbal medicine and began her love affair with this profound medicine. She then moved to Brisbane to study and obtained 2 Bachelor degrees in health science – Naturopathy and Western Herbal Medicine.
When Katherine was 2 years into her studies she received news that Jenny had passed away. This was an absolute shock and really strengthened her resolve to change our healthcare system and work towards a better future for humans on this earth.
Katherine released her first book in 2016 and launched her world-renowned podcast, The Shift in 2019. Her first clinic opened in 2011 in Brisbane.
