In Their Own Words: Charlee and Mari Lou Pilon

A lot of people who visit this blog are potential models and their parents.  This post is especially for you.  We know that the modeling industry is an intimidating one to enter, and we thought it would be helpful hearing from one of our models and her mom, in their own words about their involvement with Pulse Management. Charlee and Mari Lou, thank you for your kind words, we love and appreciate you both!

Hi Stacey!

As you know, I'm currently working, and living in New York City all thanks to you & pulse management! Scouted my freshman year of high school at a track meet never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would ever have a chance to model and travel the world! It's been a whirlwind and something I never thought was possible, but I feel so blessed & grateful for all that you, your family, & pulse management have done for me. Being so involved in my school & sports I decided it would be best for me to have a normal high school experience, & opted out on going home schooled to start my modeling career sooner. For me, personally, it was just the best decision, and I really appreciate how you and pulse respected my decision, but also never gave up on me and waited until I was ready to take on the fashion world. You've been nothing but helpful & accommodating to me & my family through this whole process. I know when I need advice, help, or just someone in my corner you're always there & I'm extremely grateful for that. I feel like there's a lot of negativity in the media about modeling or the fashion industry in general, but I can honestly say my experience has been nothing but positive. I've gotten to travel to places I never dreamed I'd have the chance of going to, experience stuff teenage girls dream of, & meet so many new friends & form new relationships. All of pulse's partner agencies have treated me with nothing but respect and truly care about my career, and me personally as well. I'm extremely grateful for you, pulse & everything you & partner agencies have done for me & family. God bless & see you soon!

Hi Stacey, 
Just wanted to say thank you for all you have done for Charlee. As you know she is in New York now working and having the experience of her life! The other Pulse girls, some of her roommates, have become her good friends and she is meeting girls from all over the world. We know we could never do this without you as her manager. You have been there from the beginning to make sure that every experience Charlee has is positive. She knows that you have her back always! She can call you anytime with anything!! As a mom it is important to know that Charlee is being taken care of 5,000 miles away from home! We are so grateful for you! We appreciate that you waited for Charlee to graduate from high school and now she is giving her all to modeling! Thank you for being patient and even supportive of all of her high school athletics. She knows that you care about her as a whole person!! I could not be the mom of a model without you! Thank you for everything!!
