The conference is designed for Australia & New Zealand’s first responders, veterans, defence force personnel, NGO workers and volunteers to facilitate discussion on the mental health and wellbeing of our frontline workers, their experiences, challenges and possible solutions.

For the past nine years Kate has been engaged with workers from our Essential Services and completing her Doctoral Research called:

‘Moving forward – identity work post service for Australian uniformed professionals in the Defence Force, Police and Emergency Services’ 

Kate's dedication and passion is unprecedented, with not only completing study at Doctoral level, but during the same time, she has completed a further Bachelor and three additional Master's Degrees to build her expertise even further to ensure she left no stone unturned, understanding and respecting the sensitivities of her client base.

These Degrees included:

  1. Bachelor of Psychological Sciences (Swinburne University)
  2. Master of Disaster and Emergency Response (Edith Cowan University)
  3. Master of International Security Studies (Macquarie University)
  4. Master of Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism (Macquarie University)

This study is further complemented by Kate's lived experience with her grandfather, father and husband all first responders working in many areas of the Essential Services. Kate is also the Queensland foundering member of the Red Cross Society of Women Leaders and volunteers her time to raise money for the Red Cross to fund emergency workers and important community programs throughout Australia and internationally.
