Kate is a first time Mum to a beautiful mixed race, bouncing baby boy and Director of a live music company. She is passionate about Gentle Parenting and wants to encourage families to trust their natural instincts, learn about different elements of parenting from other cultures and support each other with kindness, compassion and respect.
Kate originally wanted to be a Paediatric Nurse (her Mum is a nurse and her Uncle is a clinical Psychologist) so studied for a BTEC National Diploma in Nursery Nursing in 1993 before her first love, the love of music, finally got the better of her. In 1995 she studied for a BTEC National Diploma in Media Studies and later went on to teach Media & Music Business at London’s British Academy of New Music. Kate graduated from the University of Westminster in 2008 as a mature student with an MA in Music Business Management. Over the years Kate has worked with cruise liners, hotels, festivals, corporate events, weddings and on major pop tours all around the world alongside artists such as Alexander O’Neal, Shola Ama, Lisa Stansfield, Stereophonics, Rose Royce, Gabrielle, Westlife, Imagination, Loose Ends, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Jamiroquai and many others.
On becoming a Mum, Kate wanted a less hectic pace of life so she could spend more time with her son so started investigating ways in which she could incorporate her new-found passion for parenting and utilise her business management skills whilst sharing her knowledge of music and how important it is throughout our lives; from pregnancy and birth to educating and inspiring children and young people. Kate feels very privileged to be part of the gentle parenting revolution and joins us as our music expert.
