60 seconds with Karen Bacic

Karen Bacic

Course studied: Professional Dog Grooming

Karen Bacic turned her love for dogs – and her desire to fit her work around her family – into a vocation after completing the WSI Plus Professional Dog Grooming course. Armed with a home business idea for an appointment only dog grooming service in her area, Karen completed her course at Richmond College, and then opened up her business, K9’s On Kensington.

"The course I did was a fantastic way of building confidence and learning new skills. Being surrounded by like-minded people was wonderful, and the tips and tricks and advice were excellent. Putting those ideas into play when I left the course gave me a sense of great achievement. TAFE let me learn, meet people and build a brighter future."
