Together we will elevate our South Australian women of today and our women of the future.
Since 2017, SA Woman has been here to create impact and shine a light on the contributions of women in South Australia and on the future, our girls.
We believe that all South Australian women and girls deserve the opportunities to forge their own path, in a business or in a career. We believe that connection is key to a sense of belonging, encouragement and empowerment. We believe that “we can’t be, what we can’t see”, and sharing the stories and paths of the women who walk beside us, is key to elevating the status of our women and girls and empowering us all to unleash our potential. .
We create opportunities for connection, belonging and support through our membership community, our varied events and our storytelling.
Community and Connection are key to a State where we truly see women supporting women.
We elevate the profile of women and girls in businesses and careers, through our social media, blog, magazine, awards and advocacy.
We bust through ceilings, break down barriers and show what is truly possible, from right here in South Australia .
Through connection, community and elevating the achievements and contribution of the collective of women and girls across SA, we encourage her to grow and feel self-empowered to forge her own path. Nothing is impossible when we believe in ourselves.
“We can’t be, what we can’t see. SA Woman is here to show all women and girls what is possible.”

Hi, I am Katharine, I love holidays by the beach, good-quality wine and social media.
I believe that social media is the heart of your marketing body, without it pumping nothing will.
I’m a Family-orientated 50+ year old. I’ve been married for 32 years and have 2 amazing adult children. We moved every 3 – 4 years after we were married following Andrew’s work. We eventually settled in the hills when the kids were 7 & 10. Recently moving to the Fleurieu Peninsula, where we plan to retire in a few years.
We love getting away in our van, kayaking, walking with and without our furbaby – Myla, e-biking and spending time with family and friends. We love exploring SA, whether on day trips or longer trips in the van.
Administration has been part of my life since year 10, when I attended Muirden Business College, graduating with a Secretarial Diploma at the end of year 12. Apart from time off having babies and finding work where I could in some of the smaller towns we lived in, I have worked in Admin/Finance for the majority of my working life.
I am an inquisitive and creative person and rarely think inside the box. As a result, I have travelled down many and varied career paths over the last 20+ years. I have collected a diverse range of skills and experience and discovered what energise and inspires me. I am a mum of 3 (a 23 year old and 10 year old twins), a role that provides me with opportunity to discover and grow daily.
I originally qualified and worked as a registered nurse, but quickly realised that shift-work was not for me. When the opportunity to work on a research project presented I seized it. This was the beginning of 10 years working at UniSA across research, professional services and business development roles.
In 2008 I took on a short-term public policy role within the South Australian Public Service. Over the 12 years that followed I led multiple projects and policy initiatives across diverse portfolios. A highlight for me was designing and implementing the Public Sector Innovation Lab. A particular focus of the Lab program was on building collaboration and problem-solving capabilities inside and outside of government. This work saw me bring together and share my insights into what makes teams and projects succeed.
In 2020, as Chief Digital Officer for the South Australian Government, I led a range public service responses to COVID. This was an extremely rewarding and challenging role, and like many others, COVID challenged me to think about life and work in different ways. The result, in early 2021 I established my own management consulting and coaching business.
As a mum, wife, and business owner (for over 10 years), I am passionate about spending time where it matters most.
For me, spending time with my family is my priority and I am grateful that I have been able to design my life so that I can spend a lot of quality time with them.
I love that my business helps other businesses to flourish and enables other business owners to spend their time where it matters most to them (whether that be growing their business, taking better care of themselves or spending time with their kids).
