Yeppoon woman's career takes laser-like direction
KYLIE Medlin has truly taken her CQUniversity Diploma of Beauty Therapy to new heights, not only securing a job as a laser therapist for a laser skin clinic that will open soon, she has a Queensland Training Award nomination.
The 38-year-old Yeppoon woman is still reeling from the news of her nomination in the Vocational Student of the Year category.
"I feel nervous and excited, but I know it's also a great opportunity and it also gives recognition of my work and the work of the beauty teachers at CQUniversity,” she said.
Kylie was one of four CQUniversity-trained students and a teacher to be nominated in the Central Queensland Regional Queensland Training Awards.
Since completing her diploma, Kylie's career has taken a new direction.
"I'm going to be working for Laser Clinics Australia, which will open in Rockhampton this week,” she said.
"I'm also studying a Bachelor of Nursing with CQUniversity.”
She said the fields of beauty therapy and nursing went hand in hand with her career.
