Speaker, writer and events strategist, big bad feminist, clothes connoisseur, eBay aficionado, online shopaholic, seeker of a good bargain and fond of the odd psychic reading.
Taking the path-less-trodden, in 2011, after a successful eight-year long stint in HR and Recruitment for the construction and mining industries, Chiquita felt a strong pull in another direction and so followed her heart to France where she studied at the Paris Fashion Institute before launching her own fashion label “Chi the Label” (rebranded “Chiquita”) the following year.
Hand-picked from dozens of wishful candidates to launch the League of Extraordinary Women’s first Queensland branch as their QLD Crusader in August 2012, within twelve months Chiquita was offered the opportunity to relocate to Melbourne and take on the role as the League’s General Manager to oversee the group’s national growth. Under her guidance the League has become the country’s largest and fastest growing movement of driven and dynamic female entrepreneurs, and made history through launching Australia’s first ever all female entrepreneur one day conference, ‘Run the World’.
Chiquita now works with a range of clients across a variety of industries, creating on brand copy which cuts through, organising high profile events and utilising these platforms to increase brand awareness for her clients.
