Who are we?

i'm kate

Hello there! I’m Kate, a mother of three, wife, farmer & teacher. My mission is to create a positive impact in rural and regional Australia.

My journey began with a life-changing experience with our youngest son, Darcy, which ignited a passion within me to advocate for bridging the gap in rural health and education.

I firmly believe that by fostering positive relationships, we can minimise this gap.

As a parent, I understand firsthand the unique challenges of accessing support and obtaining a diagnosis for your child, especially in rural areas where resources may be limited. The geographical and emotional isolation only adds to these challenges.

That’s why I am thrilled to collaborate with Pia, as together, we aim to assist more families like ours and make their journey a little bit easier. You are not alone on the roller coaster. X

Hey there!  I’m Pia, mum of two gorgeous curly-haired kiddos.  I grew up in country WA and imported a rugby-loving husband from NSW. 

Ten years ago our lives changed when we found out our baby would be born with a heart defect.  We have since seen (seemingly) every kind of paediatric specialist and allied health practitioner in Perth. 

In 2021 I started collating and sharing lists of paediatricians and allied health professionals to help stressed families out.  It’s now grown into Perth Kids Hub, an online platform connecting families with therapists and doctors. 

When Kate and I found each other, we knew we needed to team up to extend that same help to families in rural and regional Australia.
