Kate graduated from the University of the West of England in 2015 with a Physiotherapy degree with honours. Since graduating she has worked in both the NHS and private practice and has gained a wealth of experience in a variety of specialty areas.
Kate joined University Hospitals Plymouth NHS trust after graduating, and gained experience in musculoskeletal health, neurology, orthopaedics and cardiothoracics before taking a quick career break to spend six months in the French Alps as a sports massage therapist before returning to the NHS and specialising in musculoskeletal physiotherapy, where she now works a team lead.
Following a specialist rotation within the NHS, Kate realised a true calling in further specialising in pelvic health and has completed further training and attended courses including:
The Mummy MOT course
The Diastasis Revolution by Grainne Donnelly
Female Urinary Dysfunction with the POGP
Pelvic Anatomy with Jonathon Hobbs
This passion for helping women with their pelvic health has been further driven by the recent arrival of the first Wilsmore baby in October 2022.
Within private practice, Kate has treated international level athletes of multiple sports including runners and triathletes. Her experience of living with an athlete (husband Mike!) has certainly provided an essential insight into the goals and needs of runners whether at high level or just as a hobby.
In her spare time, when not looking after Baby Ophelia, she enjoys keeping active herself in the gym, running and sea swimming; walking cockapoo Rufus and cooking for family and friends.
Post graduate qualifications also include - AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course, Level 3 Sports Massage Diploma.
HCPC and CSP registered and a member of POGP (pelvic, obstetrics and gynalogical physiotherapy)
