Kathryn Tognon

Assessment Officer

Kathryn’s passion for people and problem solving is perhaps why devoting her professional life to administrative roles in tertiary education and the not-for-profit sector has felt more like a calling than a career path.

Intrigued by the world and foreign culture, she has a Bachelor of Arts in History and Political Science and a Diploma of Modern Languages in Italian. Her previous roles have included working for Imperial College London and the University of Law in the UK, and the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in Australia.

As Assessment Officer at the Council, Kathryn brings exceptional attention to detail, customer service and process improvement to the team, and researches physiotherapy landscapes in foreign countries. She derives incredible professional joy in demystifying the complexities for overseas qualified physiotherapy candidates and supporting them on their journey to practice physiotherapy in Australia.

In 2021, Kathryn’s first co-authored article was published in the Journal of Physiotherapy, a prestigious editorial with open access and a worldwide audience.

Kathryn thrives to do her best in everything she does, drawing from David Morrison’s quote, “the standard you walk past is the standard you accept.”

Being part of the Village means…

Working in a team atmosphere, which has a sense of community and family. Kathryn loves how the Village champions its members to be the best they can be and celebrates their achievements.

Beyond the Council…

You can find Kathryn nestled on her couch crocheting or with a cuppa and the newspapers. She loves learning languages, baking, doing cryptic crosswords, walking, and reading, and watching the latest Netflix drama – next on her list is British cop show Line of Duty.

Ultimately Kathryn wants to be remembered as someone who always tried her best and looked on the bright side, no matter what life threw at her.
