Kate Dawson is a La Trobe Alumni multiple times over, starting with a Bachelor of Science, then a Bachelor of Nursing and a postgraduate course in midwifery.
After working as a midwife from 2001 in a diversity of midwifery models, Kate decided a few years ago that it was time to return to La Trobe to continue her education journey.
“I worked as a midwife for a long time and a few years ago I decided I needed to diversify so I did a Diploma of Education, again at La Trobe.” From there, Kate has progressed to her current role as the Course Coordinator for the Graduate Diploma of Midwifery where she draws from her extensive industry experiences to design real world relevant course material.
