It took Juliet a while to fall in love with DC but, 10 years later, she wouldn't want to live anywhere else! Juliet and her fellow native New England husband have 2 girls and a baby boy, and love raising them in this vibrant city. Currently she works for Yelp DC and gets super excited about sharing the love for local businesses. She loves laundry day (!), visiting ALL the museums, eating sweets, and planning overseas adventures.
