Celeste Harriman -
Client Service & Office Administrator Champion
Celeste joined Modern CPAs in August 2021 after deciding it was time to semi-retire and take on something more aligned with her current desires. Celeste previously spent most of her professional career at a large public accounting firm in West Los Angeles, for more than 40 years. Celeste has served in several client service areas throughout the years, including Business Management, Receptionist, Business Assurance, Resource Management, and Tax, the list goes on and on.
As a native New Yorker, Celeste has always loved being adventurous. When she decided she had enough of the snowy winters, Celeste and her best friend headed West in her silver Mercury Capri, with only clothes and records in tow and a sign in the back window that read “California or Bust.” Happily married to her husband, Michael, whom she met in a bar, 35+ years later, they are proof that those relationships do last! Her greatest achievement has been being a mom and enjoying the time she spends with her daughter, Nicole. Celeste enjoys getaway trips to Palm Springs and loves most sports, especially baseball (go Yankees!) and bowling. She also enjoys good Italian food, casinos, going to the movies and walking at the beach.
