What Tracy says about Katy…

“Kate and I met almost 25 years ago at the holistic birth centre when Kate joined the team supporting pregnant and birthing women with homeopathy and reiki. Since then we have had the pleasure to attend many beautiful births together at the centre and and also at home. 

Kate is a highly skilled and qualified practitioner with a passion in natural health choices and holistic well being. 

Kates initial academic journey was in  tropical medicine, where she excelled to PHD level. From here she followed her guided path into natural health options where she is currently trained and qualified as a homeopath, Reiki  master, nutritionist, yoga teacher, Doula and so much more…We are the most fortunate and well cared for organisation to have Kate as our Health and Well-Being Director.

Kate brings a ray of sunshine to ZEST, she facilitates weekly yoga sessions and well being Wednesdays. Birth is unique and dynamic and sometimes can unfold in a different way than we hoped, Kate is always on hand to offer holistic support to the ZEST community when challenges arise so they feel supported and nurtured.

Whilst Kate and I celebrate are uniqueness and differences, we are truly aligned to our ZEST core values.  We have always been extremely hard working, determined and focused on doing the “right thing “ for the greatest good.

One of Kates many strengths is being solution focused, with a “can do “attitude she encourages the team to find a way no matter what the challenges may be.

As the dedicated directors of ZEST we represent an authentic transformational leadership style .

Leading by example we demonstrate through actions that we practice the same shared values and behaviours that we expect from the ZEST community.

We are invested in the success of every single member, and together as a collaborative organisation we are the co-creators and change-makers of a truly autonomous model of midwifery led care.
