Originally from the Central Coast NSW, Kathy made her way up to far north in 2012 on her 'loving life' tour around Australia however she never made it past the Daintree Rainforest where she fell in love with the land and rainforest. Going against all her logical instincts and following her soul guidance she came to live on a remote and isolated off grid property on the never never furthest reaches of the Daintree Rainforest which is only accessible by 4wd where she has had an extended vision n soul quest which has lasted a decade (in between visits back to her original hometown on the Central Coast of NSW visiting friends and rounds of caring for her parents), living back remote and off grid on country on the edge of the Daintree Rainforest.

Earlier this year in 2023 Kathy relocated to Cairns so that she could once again share her sacred women's circles, dance and laughter events throughout Far North QLD and connect to community directly.
