Nicole Lanyon

Certificate IV in Small Business Management

After being diagnosed with breast cancer at 38, Nicole’s whole world was turned upside down. Without pausing for breath, Nicole had to immediately stop working and fight her battle. Nicole held her head high through countless medical appointments, treatments, hair loss and a mastectomy.

When her scars had healed, Nicole knew it was time to go to a lingerie store to be fitted for a prosthetic bra. Her experience was frustratingly disappointing due to the limited range available to her. It was then that Nicole made the decision to change the post-surgery lingerie world into one boasting youthful, pretty, and feminine mastectomy bras. 

To achieve her newfound mission, Nicole enrolled in Holmesglen’s Small Business Management program to develop her business goals. An outstanding student, Nicole gained many valuable skills and wrote a fantastic business plan, which formed 95% of her course assessment. 

Nicole is now living a cancer free life, forging ahead with her business Nicolette for Women – the first Australian company to produce this sort of bra.
