Think you know Celeste?
Check out her answers to some questions, especially Two Truths, One Lie!
FC: What is your position at FosterClub
CB: Head Coach
FC: What do you do when you are not working?
CB: In my mind, I'm an aspiring artist. However, I tend to produce more doodles than art. During down time, I really like to go to the beach with my dogs. I also love road trips.
FC: What are you primary job responsibilities?
CB: Stuff like making decisions, having a vision and - on occasion - breaking rules!
FC: Tell us two truths, one lie about you. (Don't tell us which one is the lie!)
CB: 1) I can fly in my dreams and it is really fun, but I have a paralyzing fear of flying in real life. 2) I love nothing more than a bacon-on-bacon sandwich. With bacon on the side. 3) I am undefeated at thumb wrestling.
FC: What is your favorite thing about coming to work each day?
CB: Bono said, "What a privilege it is to be put in a place where you can change a life - even one life." Every day, I am inspired by the young people of FosterClub. The energy, optimism and resilience they bring to our organization is infectious. That's what drives me.
