Blood clotting disease leads Kaylia to Pathology course


This is Kaylia Coulstock. She's a mother of two and one of the 34 students who recently started a Certificate III in Pathology Collection at Mater Education. 


"I've had a blood clotting disease since I was 15. I've had nine blood clots in total in my lungs and I was a haematology mystery to the doctors.


"I had to go to the pathology clinic every day for a year at one stage. My pathology collector was great and she played a very important part in my decision to study Pathology. 


"I was finally diagnosed with Antiphospholipid Syndrome a few years ago and I've had injections to deteriorate the clots.  


"I am feeling really positive and very happy that I've been given the opportunity to study at Mater Education."
