Celeste DeRoche first encountered Unitarian Universalism at the Ellsworth Unitarian Universalist Church in Ellsworth, Maine. She now lives in Los Angeles, California where she is a member of Emerson Unitarian Universalist Church in Canoga Park. She has been the Youth Group advisor since becoming a member at Emerson in 1996. This year she taught for the first time in the Coming of Age program.

Celeste recently finished her Ph.D. in United States History. Her degree, from the University of Maine, specialized in the history of immigrant woman. She now plans to turn her research focus to a history of how Unitarian Universalism came to the Pacific Coast.

Celeste lives in West Hills, California with her life partner of sixteen years, Gail Geisenhainer, the minister of Emerson UU Church.
