Millie Miller is the first graduate from Del Rio Academy of Hair and Esthetics’ Courtenay location.

“I’m so proud of Millie,” says owner/instructor Rhonda Del Rio. “She was an eager learner and a natural hairstylist.”

After considering many employment opportunities, Miller has decided to start her new career at the Head Shed in Courtenay, where she will accept new clients.

“I’m ready,” says Miller. “Rhonda and the other instructors have helped me understand importance of self-motivation. The course helped give me knowledge and people skills to start my professional career off with confidence.”

Miller started her professional training at the Comox Valley Beauty School, but when the owner retired and closed the doors, she took the opportunity to continue her training at the Del Rio Alberni location.

Once the Del Rio Academy of Hair and Esthetics opened its newest location in Courtenay, Miller transferred in to complete her education.

“Through all of these challenges, Millie kept a positive attitude and her determination to obtain her goal continues to contribute to her success,” says Del Rio. “We wish her the best.”
