Theatre Producer, Director & SA Nominee Australian of the Year 2010

Cate is a theatre producer and director specialising in professional performance work for children and family audiences. She founded Windmill Performing Arts which provides high-quality performance experiences to inspire and enrich the learning and imagination of children.
