Joining the EMPAD team in 2011 as an intern architect, Celeste is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue her role as a licensed architect and project manager after moving back to Tampa Bay last year.

Accredited by NCARB, Celeste has gained experience in commercial, office, retail, restaurant, medical, industrial, education and government projects. Her portfolio includes both new construction and renovation for organizations such as St Joseph’s Hospital, Raytheon Industries, Universal Health Services, and the Piper Clinic of St Petersburg to name a few. With degrees in both architecture and interior design, Celeste sees each project as an opportunity to utilize her experience while providing the client with a well-rounded solution that
addresses the relationship between the building exterior and the interior environment.

In addition to her professional career, Celeste stays busy as a mother to her 4 year old twin daughters and is excited to get involved again with her fellow professionals in the Tampa Bay community.
