With experience in finance, acting and teaching, Celene brings the best of these worlds to her approach to teaching speech, drama and communications. Celene graduated from Stanford with an MBA and a Master in Engineering and has worked as an engineer, a management consultant and an investment banker. She discovered the power of speech, communications, and drama while taking acting and organizational behavior classes at Stanford. Inspired, she continued her actor training at the American Conservatory Theater (ACT), London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), specializing in Shakespearean acting. Celene draws on her actor training and uses an adapted theater rehearsal process to design courses that are dynamic, interactive, and impactful.
