Celia grew up in Sacramento, California where she got to go on outdoor adventures every weekend. In high school, she continued her love for sharing the outdoors by working as a naturalist assistant at a local nature preserve and began teaching new backpackers the “Leave No Trace”
way with High Adventure Girl Scouts. Celia moved to Laramie 6 years ago for the chance to explore new scenery and continue the cellist lifestyle while attending the University of Wyoming.
During her time as a UW student, Celia spent her breaks outdoors with solar PV roof installations, studying socio-environmental topics abroad, traveling to different trails while working remotely for the UW-NPS collab, and serving as a volunteer with AmeriCorps in the Wyoming Conservation Corps twice. She has a bachelor’s in Environmental Systems Science and in Environment and Natural Resources, a minor in Sustainability, and a graduate certificate in Remote Sensing from UW.
As an OREC Specialist, Celia is excited to learn more about Wyoming’s outdoor opportunities and help others get outside.
