Katie has been with Sage Care Advice since its inception.  Recently completing her Diploma of Financial Planning and having previously obtained Aged Care Accreditation, she has stepped up from the role of Client Care Advocate to Aged Care Adviser.

Katie is knowledgable and passionate about her job.  She really gets a buzz out of assisting clients, particularly when she can change an often bleak outlook into a positive one.   Katie’s friendly nature and great sense of humour will make you feel welcome and instantly at ease.  

Outside of work life, Katie has two young active boys that keep her very busy.
