Celeste is a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner who started working with Upstate OB-GYN in October 2018. She earned both her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Clemson University, and her blood runs orange.  She is a member of the Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society of Nursing, Clemson's Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, and is a published author in the Journal of Pediatric Health Care.

Celeste spent the early part of her life living in England and Italy, as her father was in the Navy.  While stationed in Italy, her father passed away unexpectedly - this is what initially triggered her interest in medicine. Having both a personal and family history of atypical gynecologic anatomy, Celeste knew Women's Health was a specialty she had a strong interest in. After receiving her Bachelor of Science in Nursing, she spent 10 years working at the bedside as a surgical/medical surgical nurse at St. Francis Hospital in Downtown Greenville.  Along with her background in surgical nursing, her passion for Women's Health led her to become the newest provider at Upstate OB-GYN. Celeste enjoys patient interaction, and has especially enjoyed taking care of pregnant women while she has been pregnant herself!

Outside of work, she enjoys traveling, food, medical missions, and Clemson Football. She loves spending quality time with her husband and 4-year old son; they are excited to be expecting a baby girl in April 2019. Celeste is looking forward to this new chapter as a Nurse Practitioner with our excellent group of providers.
