About Celeste

For over a decade I have facilitated interactive presentations that enable groups to experience simple, scientifically validated strategies for feeling better.

I discovered intentional laughter while searching for a means to bring back the laughter in my own life that I had lost due to stress and other negative life events. You can see more about my story here in my TEDx talk

My extensive work laughing with older adults  inspired me to complete my Master of Arts in Gerontology at Georgia State University in 2014. During my tenure at GSU, I developed the LaughActive Group Exercise Program for Seniors.  We did a rigorous evaluation looking at the program’s efficacy and the study was published in a peer-reviewed journal

In 2017, Dr. Madan Kataria, the founder of the worldwide Laughter Yoga movement, awarded me the prestigious Laughter Ambassador distinction for my outstanding work in the field.

I love to laugh and help others laugh. I'm so glad I get to do this for a living!
