Prior to Well Fed, Celeste started her career at Disney Consumer Products in Product Development, and launched her first DTC organic skincare line, Nectar, in 2011.
While freelancing as a web developer, Celeste became a trusted local community & culture guide for corporate teams at Google, Airbnb, YouTube, and Nestlé. As a host, her "bite-sized" food and travel videos have garnered millions of views on AppleTV and Tastemade, where she has also hosted episodes of Taste Test, a foodie trivia show for Snapchat Discover.
In 2014, Celeste helped pioneer influencer-led product lines and joint ventures for top social media personalities and celebrities at Digital Brand Products, while also leading brand and marketing strategy for in-house brands, eventually becoming Director of Marketing of ROE Caviar.

Celeste created Well Fed in 2015 to help entrepreneurs and startups navigate the "sweet spot", where design meets product/market fit.
