Cecelia is a “Jane of All Trades,” and is very professionally curious, pursuing many career threads rather than just one. Her primary profession is as a freelance communications consultant, providing guidance on creative projects, creative direction, and writing for projects such as museum exhibits, multimedia pieces, videos, enterprise-level websites, marketing communication vehicles, etc.
She often serves as a contract historian and museum exhibit content developer/strategist. Her most recent work includes serving as the communication strategist for the new McNair Elephant Habitat at the Houston Zoo, opening in late May 2017. Other works include the “You are the Exhibit” installation at the John P. McGovern Museum of Health and Medical Science and as the writer of the commemorative history of the Houston Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. Additionally, she was a consultant in the development of the Bank’s museum exhibits. Cecelia is also a voice-over artist and her voice can even be heard in many exhibit narrations, especially in the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Her voice has appeared in many online applications and on Radio/TV.
She is also at times a freelance writer when the mood strikes, with her most recent pieces on Houston’s local food scene appearing in Bayou City Magazine and on the magazine’s blog.
With so many career pursuits, Cecelia has had to face the very real fact that any choice requiring the persistent application of math will likely not end well, so she’s decided to abandon a sometime goal of being a financial wizard on Wall Street. She feels this decision does not create any real threat to the continued growth and progress of civilization; in fact, it will likely have the opposite effect. Instead, she’s currently pursuing dual masters degrees at Goucher College in MD. She’s earning an MA in Cultural Sustainability and an MFA in Creative Nonfiction Writing.
She’s married to her very patient husband Charles and lives in the historic Freeland District in the Houston Heights.
