She was a preschool teacher as she completed her master’s degree, which is where her love for working with children flourished. During her graduate career, Juliette had the opportunity to begin working with teenagers as they dealt with life’s challenges and transitions. She interned at a counseling center that focused on helping individuals through the hardships and challenges of the immigration process, providing her with an unmeasurable perspective on human strength. She also assisted in creating multiple workshops about the importance of maintaining healthy sleep hygiene and its impact on physical and mental health. As the global pandemic hit in 2020, Juliette tailored the workshops to focus on helping those struggling with anxiety and stress and identifying healthy ways to cope with the new way of living.
