Celina acted as a program coordinator with IslandWood’s Urban School Programs for several years, working on field studies, stormwater curriculum and teacher PD in Seattle, then in 2021 moved into a new role as IslandWood’s Partnerships Manager. In this position, she enjoys building relationships with community partners, collaborating with teachers on neighborhood-centered science curriculum and working across the education team to deepen school partnerships. Celina graduated from both of IslandWood’s graduate programs, completing the Education for Environment and Community program in 2003, and then a Masters in Education through the Urban Environmental Education program with Antioch University in 2016. She loves being able to work with graduate students as adjunct faculty for the Strategies for Effective School Partnership course.


Celina is committed to personal and professional growth and change as she contributes to efforts to unpack and undo systems of inequity in environmental and science education. Listening, self-reflection, joy-finding and relationship-building are central to how she approaches learning and teaching. Celina is energized by time with friends, cooking, gardening, and exploring the region through birding, hiking, kayaking and camping in urban and less-urban nature with her partner and friends.
