Celeste Bumpus is an author, coach and the president of Creating Balance Seminars.
A former General Manager for American Express, Celeste worked her way up from an entry-level position to managing over 25 business locations. Working with American Express Corporate Services for almost two decades, Celeste held positions as Travel Consultant, Area Manager, Manager of Operations, Regional Manager of Client Services, and General Manager of Client Relations. A creative, self-motivated, top performer, her professional responsibilities required her to be at the same time: a leader, consultant, manager, planner, speaker, motivator, persuader, coach and mentor, professional roles in which she excelled. Exceeding organizational goals and expectations time and time again she was the recipient of numerous performance and excellence awards throughout her career.
As a mother of two, challenged with juggling a career, family and healthy lifestyle, Celeste made simple changes and mastered a healthy work/life balance.
Recognizing that eating healthy is a skill and how simple changes can add up, Celeste formed Creating Balance Seminars to help others achieve a healthier lifestyle, and published her first book “Are the Blueberries in Your Waffles Really Blueberries?” a guide to eating smart.
In 2009, following the tragic loss of her younger brother Stephen; Celeste realized her path was to help others in every aspect of their life and her business evolved into Creating Balance with Mind, Body and Spirit. A practice she’s embraced her entire life.
