Before she graduated from Stephens College with a B.A. in Business Administration, Julie Reiser ’92 dreamed of working in New York. She had already interned with Carol Everitt Charny ‘67, then president of the sports division at Calvin Klein in New York.
However, Reiser, a St. Louis native, took a brief detour after graduation and pursued a master’s degree in education at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale.
“I quickly realized after one year that teaching was not for me,” she says. “I was lucky to be able to connect with a great network of Stephens alumnae in New York, including Joyce Perkins Johnson ’91 and Rachel and Laura Gross (’93 and ’91, respectively) who were a tremendous support system to me at the time.”
