“I couldn’t believe it when I passed my test. The support from WomenCAN Australia and Dysons made the journey possible,” Kylie shares.

Now relishing her daily customer interactions and the diverse routes, Kylie aims higher with dreams of driving a Charter/V/Line coach. Beyond driving, she embraces public speaking opportunities, inspiring other women to join this fulfilling career.

Kylie’s journey epitomizes resilience, empowerment, and the transformative impact of breaking gender norms in traditionally male-dominated fields. Dysons gains not just a skilled driver but a trailblazer shaping the future of women in the industry.

We are so proud of your Kylie, enjoy your new role!
