After receiving a biology degree from the University of Texas, Celeste worked a variety of jobs reflecting her love for nature. She began working in the Cockrell Butterfly Center in 2012 and is now the Insect Zoo Manager. When she’s not caring for the CBC’s live bug collection, she’s teaching others to love and appreciate bugs!
