It's a pleasure to meet you!
Juliet Picard // Co-founder
Juliet Picard graduated cum laude from Cornell University with a B.S. in Applied Economics & Management, specializing in both Finance and Accounting. While at Cornell University, among several leadership roles, she was the Business Manager of the Cornell Daily Sun, which is a student-run independent newspaper. Since graduating, she worked as a financial services consultant at PwC in NYC. She was ranked as a top performer and received an early promotion after two years to Senior Associate.
After sending in her last student loan payment, she decided to take a break from PwC and pursue her creative passions in writing (novels, screenwriting, sketches) and acting. This was no surprise to many of her close friends as she had written a women's fiction novel during her time at PwC, acted during her senior year at Cornell, and had previously been a stringer for CosmoGirl! magazine in high school.
She is also working on a second novel in the Romance genre. For more information regarding Juliet's creative interests please visit her personal site.
