She attended the 2019 para-athletics world championships in Dubai as the Australian track and field team doctor and is due to support the team leading into the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.

Kimberley worked directly with the AIS Centre of Excellence basketball squad and volleyball teams as well as providing care to Australia’s high performance rowers, gymnasts, track and field athletes, para-athletes, swimmers, combat sport athletes, cyclists, endurance runners, triathletes and Winter sports. She travelled with the Australian Kookaburra’s field hockey team to Malaysia where they won the Aslan Shah tournament before going onto the gold medal at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. Kimberley has also worked as the team doctor for the Australian Youth Netball team at their World Cup in Botswana and with athletes at the AIS European Training Centre in Italy.

Originally from Coonamble in country New South Wales, Kimberley graduated from James Cook University in North Queensland in 2009 and did her initial hospital years in Canberra, Australia. Kimberley then took on part time roles and pursed her life as a professional road cyclist, winning two Australian National road titles in the criterium as well as UCI sanctioned road races in America and Europe.
