Bianca & Rosemarie Michetti's success story

Bianca and Rosemarie Michetti standing by some exercise equipment, holding a stethoscope.
Sisters Bianca and Rosemarie Michetti followed pathways from TAFE to postgraduate study in exercise science and osteopathy. Now they plan to bring affordable healthcare to the west.

“We found the campuses conveniently located and the perfect place to begin establishing professional networks. We were able to transition from TAFE to where we are now, working as an osteopath and an exercise physiologist. The teachers made sure we had the tools needed to reach for our goals no matter what.”
