Kate Sar­gin­son (UK)

Ten years ago, Kate came to Malaysia to visit her fa­ther and was un­ex­pect­edly of­fered a job with Ai­ra­sia at a party by none other than Tony Fer­nan­des – Ai­ra­sia was just three years old. then A stint fol­lowed in a re­search and con­sult­ing com­pany for sports and entertainment, as well as a spell in the pub­lish­ing in­dus­try.

Af­ter a break to re-train as a health coach, yoga in­struc­tor and per­sonal trainer, she launched Com­mon Wellness to of­fer those ser­vices to the women of KL. At the same time, she’s also the Mar­ket Di­rec­tor for Asia for global wellness news plat­form Welltodo. And when she’s not at work, she teaches at the As­so­ci­a­tion of Bri­tish Women in Malaysia’s house.

Be­sides her own train­ing and yoga, Kate loves walks in the jun­gle and also plays netball with the MK Tigers Club in tour­na­ments here and across the re­gion. Malaysia’s diver­sity ‘al­ways keeps it in­ter­est­ing’, she says, and de­spite the tran­sient ex­pat life­style, KL is home for now.
