I started the show, "Winbrook Pride Arts and Entertainment", to show positive role models. We find people from all walks of life to let kids know you can be successful. Everybody has some sort of story to tell, and you can't use the fact that you grew up in a housing project as an excuse.

Killion, Juliette Saisselin
Juliette Saisselin-Killion worked with her husband Bill Killion and Jon Keck on "The Cost of Comfort in Your Home" . "I was always hearing my husband talk about his love for home efficiency and the home as a system and after doing a number of cost efficient projects to our own house and saw and felt the benefits of those projects I wanted to do a show about efficiencies to help educate the homeowner. Both Bill and Jon had worked for many years on projects together and were eager to share their knowledge. "The home should be viewed "holistically".Juliette currently works for a private investment manager in NYC and is an accredited health coach while pursuing her accreditation in traditional Chinese Herbology.
