Katrina Smithson

Shot Q1 2017

I am a New Zealand author whose love of writing began when I was asked to write a fortnightly column for a local newspaper on student issues when I was 16 years old.

My subsequent career in finance brought me to Sydney, Australia in 2008 where I now live with my family including three young children.

I like to write about complex and challenging issues that many people struggle with. I combine personal experience and deep insight with compassion and research to help others overcome similar challenges in their own lives.

I am motivated to help others, and I have books published on the topics of navigating the Family Court and on recovering from eating disorders.
