Kristine joined the institute in 2010 after working in the Australian sport academy system. She reported that she was looking for new sporting adventures, but we have it on good authority that she wanted to test her limits in coping with cold wet weather. Kristine completed her training in Australia. She was awarded a Doctorate of Psychology (Sport & Exercise) from the University of Southern Queensland and is registered in Australia and the UK.
Kristine is currently the lead sport psychologist for golf, shooting, women’s hockey, gymnastics, and triathlon. She has a focus on target sports and has also worked with women’s curling. Kristine works with athletes and coaches to raise their awareness about their psychological skills and limitations. She is slowly but surely hoping to develop the Scottish athletic psyche so that the confidence of the athletes matches the passion and skills that she sees.
Kristine has never been and is unlikely to ever be an elite athlete. She loves to watch rugby, cricket, and anything else that Australia is good at, plays football badly, cycles in good weather, and goes for the odd climb.
