Celeste Estrella

Celeste was drawn to Community Initiatives’ expertise in non-profit administration, governance and financial management. The opportunity was also a good fit with her prior experience in the Philippines, where she worked to provide equitable access to justice.

Born in the South Bay but raised in Manila, Philippines, she moved to the Bay Area to complete her MBA at University of San Francisco. The thriving non-profit sector here is one of the main reasons Celeste decided to pursue a graduate degree and work in the area.

“The work Community Initiatives does allows the non-profit community in the Bay Area (and beyond) to focus and strengthen their expertise in programmatic/sectoral work, while investing minimal resources and worrying less on administrative and financial management.”

Celeste is passionate about education. She also loves live music and stand-up comedy shows. Right now when she’s out of the office, she’s flashing back to childhood - building and collecting Lego BrickHeadz with Voltron Lions are next on her to-do list.
