Their relationship continues off and on throughout the end of seasons two, first half of season three, final half of season four, up until they end up together for life. Juliet is portrayed by American singer and actress Bridget Mendler from TV sitcom Good Luck Charlie.
When she was born, her parents let her have a soul so that she could socialize in the mortal world, which makes her nice and down-to-earth, as opposed to most vampires, who are usually heartless and cunning. ("Wizards vs. Vampires: Tasty Bites")
Juliet has been in many relationships, two mentioned were with Julius Caesar and Galileo in the past. Juliet has also been to eighteen proms. ("Wizards & Vampires vs. Zombies") Three hundred years before season three, Juliet was in a serious relationship with Mason Greyback. It is unknown how their relationship ended but they remained on good terms. ("Wizards vs. Werewolves")

Theresa and Jerry Russo send down their eldest son, Justin Russo to check out the place. Justin is taking a video of the restaurant and reading their menu when Juliet van Heusen, daughter of the restaurant's owner, sees him. Justin immediately connects with Juliet and soon thereafter asks her out on a date. The couple remain a secret at first since both their parents would not approve. Justin and Juliet finally come clean and their parents allow them to be together. ("Wizards vs. Vampires On Waverly Place")
Justin has Juliet over for dinner so she can get to know his family. Juliet tells Theresa that she cannot eat their dinner because vampires have to watch what they eat.

("Wizards vs. Vampires: Tasty Bites")
Juliet asks Justin if he wants to go on vacation with her and her family.

Juliet and Jerry both learn that Justin was lying and Juliet leaves the Sub Station upset.

She is not mentioned during "Wizards Return: Alex vs Alex" but it can be assumed that she is either with her family at the Late Nite Bite while Justin works at Wiz-Tech or is with Justin at Wiz-Tech herself. The latter is most likely.
Being a vampire Juliet is/was an extremely powerful being:
- Shape-shifting — She can transform fully or partially into a bat (i.e. arms to wings).
- Superspeed — Juliet can move at incredible speeds, best demonstrated in "Wizards vs. Vampires: Tasty Bites", were she was able to move from one end of the street to the other in a blur.
- Flight — By turning her arms into wings Juliet can fly, according to her, at a top speed of around 50 miles per hour.
- Enhanced sense of smell — Juliet is able to smell foods and scents over quite large distances.
- Immortality and slow aging — She can live practically forever and ages at the rate that she looks Justin's age when she is in her two thousands.
- Sleep control — Juliet is shown to have minor powers of putting people to sleep, as shown on Justin during their first date.
- Agility — Juliet is able to flip and twist over obstacles and is also able to, with the help of her wings, launch herself towards Mason in "Wizards vs. Werewolves".
Though Juliet had briefly lost her vampire abilities, she did not die; hinting she may still had immortality but not eternal youth due to a spell or her being different from most vampires, as her parents stated she was born with a soul. And having a soul means that her parents may have wanted her to become human or for other reasons.
