Kate Osborne

Hibiscus Coast Clinic

Physiotherapist and Assoc. Hand Therapist

BHSc (Physiotherapy), PGD (Journalism)

Kate has been part of the Hibiscus Coast Hands On team since 2018. Before moving into hand therapy, Kate worked predominantly in orthopaedic and paediatric physiotherapy in New Zealand and the UK. She also had roles mentoring and supervising undergraduate physiotherapy students at Starship and North Shore Hospitals. Kate’s interest in childhood and teenage conditions continues and she particularly enjoys working with this group at Hands On.

As well as undertaking post graduate training in the hand and upper limb, Kate has also studied communications and is a regular contributor to several sports/health publications and websites - a great way to combine her diverse physiotherapy knowledge and love of writing.

Kate lives locally with her husband, three school-age kids, and a wee pup, who all love beaching, fishing and boating on the Coast.
