Celia worked in the corporate world in a number of roles including CPA, internal, external auditors, and most recently as a mortgage originator and insurance agent. She graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia. At the time, she chose accounting as a major because she thought the degree would assure her a job in any market. However, accounting work would be the last resort for her. She loves interacting with people, often considered a social butterfly, and enjoys helping clients fulfill their financial goals. As an outgrowth of a childhood dream, she decided to test the literary pool and create independent career-oriented characters who sometimes find love after all.
