Bio of Marie-Pier
Marie-Pier Lessard, Account manager
After graduating from UQÀM in 2013, Marie-Pier quickly made her way into the Quebec beauty and fashion industry. After a successful internship, she joined TVA Publications’ Clin d’oeil magazine as lifestyle journalist, before overseeing the whole beauty section – both paper and web. Her career also includes experiences as an advertisement writer at Havas Worldwide. Finally, she recently left L’Oréal Canada after 3 years as Integrated Communication Leader for Kérastase, L’Oréal Professionnel, Pureology and Shu Uemura. In 2019, she joined the dynamic team at Thara Communications as the new lifestyle, beauty and fashion account manager, more motivated than ever.
Fan of ‘beauty” in the broad sense, Marie-Pier cumulates the visits in third wave coffee shops, neighborhood stores or cosmetic counters. In her bag, you’ll find 1001 balms or lipstick, her cellphone that is full of pictures, essential oils, vintage jewelry, a novel by a Quebec author and portraits of Lionel, her beloved dog sausage.
