Celeste grew up in New Orleans and is proud to call NOLA home, but she knows there is much work to do in the South.
Celeste’s current work specializes in strategic planning, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion implementation and philanthropic management. Before Converge, Celeste worked with Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans, a french immersion school chartered to provide a French curriculum education from kindergarten through high school in a non-denominational environment where social diversity is considered essential to the student’s education.
