Quincy

In 2013 I took a break from a career spanning 10 years in banking and consulting to embark on a new direction in my life. From a young age I had always wanted to own and run my own business and felt I would always end up doing that. I loved my career in banking and knew if I didn’t make a change soon, I would quite easily be there for many years to come. I decided to take on a new challenge by taking over Quincy a luxury shoes and bag boutique in Woollahra, Sydney. Quincy showcases collections from local and international renowned designers such as Manolo Blahnik, Repetto and Pedro Garcia. A new direction, industry and life change to retail and fashion has certainly given me enough challenges to keep me busy and constantly learning. I am very passionate about meeting and supporting other like minded business owners and sharing information to continuously improve and help each other grow.
