Celine is your typical millennial from Los Angeles who quit her job as a graphic designer at American Apparel to learn more about fly fishing. Having traded her hipster heels for wading boots since moving to Kernville, you can probably catch her on the river yelling curses at missed hook-sets or having a rap battle dance off with her fly ladies. When she isn't making a ruckus on the river or working out of her home office, Celine works on local conservation projects with Keepers of the Kern and the US Forest Service. She is also part of Kern River Conservancy's Wild Trout Conservation Outreach Team. Celine is currently apprenticing to be a guide with Kern River Fly Shop and is also working on getting more women introduced to fly fishing through Southern Sierra Fly Fishers' Women's Fly Fishing Clinic.
