Background

Celeste completed a Bachelor of Social Work in 2004 at Monash University, continuing to further her studies completing a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws.  Whilst Celeste is comfortable working across a breadth of client groups, she has a special interest in working with adolescents and young adults.
