Celeste O'Keefe Chosen to Move CYP Forward

Meet Celeste O’Keefe, Leadership and Programs Coordinator

Where are you from? 

Baltimore, Maryland 

What brought you to Charleston? 

My best friend (from Michigan) and I decided it was time for a change and to get away from the snow, so we headed south! We are excited to explore Charleston and pick up some new hobbies, like surfing!

What are three words your friends would use to describe you? 

Outgoing, positive and adventurous! They also call me “The Plant Queen” LOL

What are you most excited about coming into this role?  

I am most excited about all of the opportunities that CYP offers because of the ongoing support of the Chamber, the team and the community. I am excited to meet more like-minded individuals from various backgrounds and work together to shape the next generation.

The CYP Steering Committee and I have many hopes and dreams for CYP – keeping our 4 pillars (connect, policy, professional development and service) in mind, this program has been and will continue to make an impact in our community.

I’m ready to get to work!

What is your hope for the future of CYP?

My hope is to be able to grow not only in size, but also the level of impact we have on the community. I want to see Charleston Young Professionals become a driving force, leading change and innovation. We have already started putting together some exciting ideas and I cannot wait to share them with you!
