On leaving school she worked at the Kate Cocks Babies' Home at Brighton until beginning training in 1947, at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Midwifery training followed, then country hospital nursing in various parts of Australia, and nursing overseas in Britain and South Africa. After 1973 Kate turned to community health nursing. She was a student in the first course in this field conducted by the Hospitals Department (later the Health Commission) and was a nurse at the Clovelly Park and the Morphett Vale community health centres, before she retired in 1990.
