Personal profile


Kate is a communications specialist with extensive experience in corporate, science, technology and consumer communications, as well as media relations, stakeholder engagement and events management.  Before joining the Raine Study, she spent over two decades leading and implementing PR campaigns at multinational organisations, non-profits and start-ups in Australia, the US, the UK, and across Europe. 

At the Raine Study, she is responsible for sharing the Raine Study's story with key stakeholders: the consumer participants who take part in and enable the Raine Study's research, the researchers who utilise the Raine Study's extensive data holdings, and the broader stakeholders who support the Raine Study's endeavours (academic institutions, government agencies, private funding bodies and more). She is passionate about making health and medical research not just accessible to a non-science audience, but relevant and exciting to them too.

In addition, she leads the Raine Study’s intern program, coaching and mentoring undergraduate students in science communications.
