She's A Sabbatical Beauty: Celeste Voce

Celeste Voce is one of our most wonderful community members who often develops great product hacks for SB! Tell us about you! I’m a Registrar for a mid-career artist. I am also an artist myself, working primarily in photography. I live in Los Angeles with my husband our 2 cats. I’m probably addicted to sugar. At least 25% of my closet is denim.

I'm a lifelong Floridian, with the exception of about five years that I spent in Los Angeles. I have a rabid love of my crazy state, its natural resources, and its ability to make headlines. My personal Florida stories are what you would expect growing up in a place where everything can kill you. When I was three, the “biting worms” I found in the backyard turned out to be a nest of juvenile pygmy rattlesnakes. That wasn't even my first nature related trip to the ER (I had previously...
