Cate opened Hands on Hand Therapy in 2007 after relocating from Orange where she had her private practice, Orange Hand Rehabilitation. She has been an active member of the Australian Hand Therapy Association since 1997 and has enjoyed mentoring students and new graduates in the field of Hand Therapy. Cate was the recipient of the Jill Chapman Award for Best Clinical Paper at the annual AHTA conference in 2002. She continues to enjoy clinical challenges and balances this with family life, bee keeping and Micro Cavoodle breeding. Cate established Hands on Hand Therapy (NSW) in 2007 to provide specialised hand therapy services initially in Kiama before expanding to Nowra, Bowral (now closed) and Figtree locations. When not at work Cate enjoys spending time with her husband and 4 children on their farm, looking after her bees and studying Archaeology.
