I'm Kate!

I'm an Australian-based creative, Model and Coach with big dreams of helping aspiring Models make their way into the industry and thrive. I'm obsessed with: integrity, authenticity, a tidy home, smashed avocado, and being the person I needed when I was younger.

PSA: I don't take myself too seriously, though I do take my work seriously.

Have you been thinking about making a start in the model industry, but held back because you didn’t know quite how to get started or what to do? I started out exactly the same way: having no clue, no connections, no financial backing, all whilst living in a small town with no family support. It’s why I created The Model Masterclass! If I can start from the ground up, I know you can too 🙂 Kate x
