Hi, hello! Alexis here - QUINSCO’s newest team member, supporting all things marketing and brand partnerships! Maybe I’m just speaking for myself, but one of my favourite things about small businesses are the people behind them, so here’s a short and sweet deep-dive into who we are - outside of QUINS!
If you’ve been following the brand for a while, I’m sure you already know who Rachelle is! She is the founder and maker behind QUINSCO. What you may not know is that aside from running a small business, she's also a full-time Corporate Actuary (a true mathlete at heart) and a dog mom to the infamous Bailey aka Bails. She was born and raised in Winnipeg, MB but has called Toronto her homebase since 2009 (go Raptors!). Her go-to perfume is Jo Malone's Nectarine Blossom & Honey and her guilty pleasures include good wine, documentaries, and American politics. I would describe her personal style as timeless; she has a true love for classic high fashion.
I can’t say that I am completely new to the brand. Back in 2016, only a year after QUINSCO's launch and one year into university, Rachelle generously offered me an internship position at QUINSCO for the summer. My offical title was “social media and events coordinator" (so legit, the job experience still lives on my LinkedIn profile 🙌🏽). Since that summer, I completed my marketing degree from the Bissett School of Business and now work as a full-time Account Manager at a video marketing agency in Calgary. I’m an obsessive dog parent to Presley and my most favorite way to workout is boxing. I’m the oldest of four siblings and my family is easily one of the most important things in my life.
It’s crazy to think that everything has come full circle now that Rachelle and I are back together as a team. I'm so excited to be a part of this next chapter at QUINSCO and I'm especially excited to have all of you QUINS here with us here!
Cheers to having a space where we can share some of our favourite parts of life and connect far deeper than the gold jewels we wear everyday ;)
