Kate’s first passion has always been performing. Growing up as a baroque musician and singer, she fell under theatre’s magical spell as she attended everything from puppetry to opera to street theatre in her hometown of Adelaide. High school was full of musical and drama studies at Brighton Secondary School. Choir tours and musical studies took her to Europe after high school, where she immersed herself in small theatre companies in Holland with international casts, whilst studying with Baroque master Daniel Bruggen.
Kate graduated from Flinders Drama Centre, Flinders University as well as further studies in London and Los Angeles.
