Kate is the co-founder of ShippShape Fitness and Nutrition alongside her brother Andrew. For years Kate suffered from debilitating health issues - chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and chronic migraines. After completing her nutrition degree, Kate felt there was more to learn and has since undertaken research of her own to try to find the answers that traditional medicine just couldn't provide. Discovering she had intolerances to mould and other foods, she eliminated these from her diet and started following a whole-foods plant based diet. Kate saw an almost immediate improvement in her well being and has continued to undertake research to find what works for her. Since the beginning of 2017, Kate has been free of all health issues - which she credits to her holistic view of health.
Kate is passionate about helping others and believes in the importance of focusing on all aspects of well being in order to overcome health issues. To accompany her nutrition degree, Kate completed her Cert III & IV in fitness, as she believes exercise and nutrition work hand in hand. With a strong background in nutrition and personal training, Kate can educate and inspire others to find the answers to their health issues with an understanding and holistic approach.
