Foundng Director, Health Sciences Simulation Center


Celeste Villanueva is an administrator with the heart of an educator and deep roots as a clinician in critical care nursing and nurse anesthesia. Leveraging skills honed as a CRNA, an early adopter and passionate advocate of simulation-based learning, and most recently, as a student of learning technologies, Celeste takes a pragmatic, systematic approach to bringing blue-sky dreams to reality.  What she enjoys most is learning alongside students and faculty to discover “Aha” moments in whatever the line of inquiry is, and bringing creative ideas to fruition and long life.  She is a practiced team builder and worker and believes that our work environment is a place that should inspire us to reach higher and to enjoy the journey.
