Kate Gray has just celebrated her 20th year in the nursing profession.
The majority of her nursing career has been in the intensive care environment, both locally and overseas, and it was through nursing critically ill patients that Kate developed an interest in caring for organ donors.
In 2015 Kate joined the small DonateLife Tasmania team as a Donation Specialist Nursing Coordinator (DSNC) where she continues to passionately work in the organ donation specialty.
As a DSNC Kate supports families of patients at end-of-life to make enduring organ and tissue donation decisions, cares for donors and coordinates the organ and tissue donation process and provides education to the clinical and local community. She is also the Education coordinator for DonateLife Tasmania.
DonateLife Tasmania has grown over the past decade, the team now delivering an independent service for organ and tissue donation across Tasmania and Kate’s colleagues love nothing more than being in the car with her chatter on the way to a remote case!
Outside of work, Kate is a mum to two young children and loves to bushwalk, spend time on the coast and travel.
