Celia graduated from the University of the Philippines with a degree in History. She earned two Masters Degrees in English as a Second Language and Library Science from The State University of New York in Albany. Celia had a successful career working as a Librarian for the United States Army bases in Germany and in Japan. These work stations allowed her to travel extensively throughout Europe, Asia and much of the rest of the world, satisfying her passion to experience different cultures and places.
