I was born in the early 1970’s in a little country town called Kempsey in NSW. With a slightly different beginning to most, I was adopted out at 2 weeks old to my current parents who had already adopted a boy before me. It is a story that others might find familiar, but it connects us to time when things were different, it is just the beginning to my story.
I have spent most of my life in the beautiful city of Brisbane QLD. I love the life I share with my husband, who is also my business partner, along with our beautiful and creative daughter. We have 1 scruffy dog, 2 entitled cats and an unusual Axolotl named Lexi.
My work experience centred on children’s services, until I opened Michelle K Boutique & Gits back in 1995 with my mum. We gradually evolved from a shop front into the mobile fashion business. I left retail for a period to work in adult education, where I was fortunate to have a go at graphic design and multimedia roles developing workshops, photography and filming mini documentaries.
I am now back full time as owner operator of our family mobile fashion business with my husband. We share the roles in life and work as we learn and grow our business.
