In 2008 Kate changed career from Finance and moved into the construction industry, Starting off as a Quantity Surveyor and then moving into the Supply Chain as a supply merchant and then in manufacturing in the Fire Safety industry. 

During Kates career she has always wished to encourage more women into the industry and had originally moved into construction after having a daughter and wanting to show her that “anything is possible.” Whilst studying at college, Kate was surprised by the lack of young women studying in this very rewarding area. 

Kate now works as a Performance Coach, helping women within leadership roles and those who want to improve their career options as well as delivering motivational talks and training.
