Kathleen's quest for dramatic tuition finally arrived when she was accepted into Box Hill College's Drama/Dance T.O.P course - and her life changed forever! She continued her studies at Melbourne University, B.Ed (Sec) in Drama, Dance & Literature where she was awarded the Dr Percy Jones Drama Scholarship.

Whilst teaching part-time, she pursued an acting, singing and modelling career, during which time she worked on Henderson Kids, Prime Time, Chances, various commercials and in 1990 was named the face of Sportscraft. A highlight of her acting career during this period was playing "Helena" in the Australian Film Corporation & Hawthorn Institute's feature film A Midsummer Night's Dream. For theatre, she played lead roles in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Skirmishes, The Mysteries and Little Brother Little Sister. She additionally wrote, co-produced and directed three Corporate Films for Diners Club International, starring Tony Barber (Sale of The Century).

After a break to attend to her maternal instincts, Kathleen returned to the theatre after completing the "Acting Up" drama class series with Sally McLean in 2003 & 2004. She played "Emily" in P.S. I Love You, "Yasmine" in the 2003/04 workshop performances of Chasing Pegasus (a play in ten chords) and '"Mary'" in Brigit & Benny (a modern faerietale) (short film entrant Cannes Film Festival 2005). Vocally, she trained under Monique Brunnel, going on to gain a lead role in A Grand Night For Singing and "Milly" in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

Kathleen's most recent theatre appearance was playing "Christine" in Dancing at Lughnasa for the Frankston Theatre Company.
