work with me

My vision is to empower visionary entrepreneurs to create a story so captivating, authentic, and real, that it will manifest lasting effects in both your personal life and business.


My job is to pull out those radical ideas swimming inside of your head and that relentless passion bursting from your chest and translate it into a narrative that is unfiltered, captivating, and more prosperous than you can possibly imagine. Together, we will create a story that reflects your heart and soul, gives you clarity and direction, gives you back control over your life and business, and is influential and emotionally powerful by design.

My services include:

  • Private 1:1 Coaching
  • Story Clarity Intensive
  • Sponsored brand/event/speaker collaborations

There’s a powerful story inside of you, and it wants to get out. Let’s bring that story to life.


There are loads of influencers and brand coaches out there, but Celinne has a special skill of finding a story where most people won’t - she actually talks to and interacts with people, finds patterns, and turns her insights into heartfelt content that moves and influences her audience.

The content she helped us create for our Portugal Stopover campaign had stellar engagement, told a unique story, and helped the internal marketing team better understand what the brand stands for.
I was really happy with the brand story work Celinne did for us and have already hired her again.

- David Neeleman, Founder and Chairman of Jetblue Airways & Azul Brazilian Airways, Investor and Board Member at TAP Air Portugal


Once I started working with Celinne and she started working her word "wizardry" on me, I felt supported in such a wonderful way. She quickly pulled out all the important parts of me and helped me craft a message and tell my story in a way that felt SO me. I felt aligned with my mission and the impact that I want to have on the world.

Not only did she help with my story, but she listened to my business struggles, my wins, and offered me some GENIUS advice and perspectives that are proving to be invaluable. She looks at the world in a very special way and I greatly benefited from speaking to a businesswoman who is connected to story, soul, and vulnerability in a way that is rare in the world of online business.

If you’re thinking about working with her - you won’t regret it!

- Jess Lenouvel, Founder of The Listings Lab, California, USA


I originally hired Celinne to help me with content. To pull out of me the stories and ideas that I knew were living inside of me. And man, what I got was so much more. Celine helped me to not only fine-tune my messaging and create an entire bank of incredible stories to share, but she also guided me to dig deep and really understand the impact of my work. She ultimately became a mindset coach for me and someone I could share my spiritual side with.

We all know in our hearts why we do what we do. But sometimes putting all of those big beautiful ideas into words can be so challenging. If you have trouble properly articulating what you do, how you do it, and WHY you do it I can’t recommend Celine enough. You will come out more focused, clear and empowered to spread your message and teach from a place of confidence and flow.

- Meghan Sylvester, Spiritual Teacher and Life Coach, USA


Celinne is a masterful storyteller who can quickly and efficiently pull out the deepest parts of your brand story and help you find clarity where there was once before confusion.The one thing you need to know about Celinne’s work is that her words and stories sell. I was featured in international press and had a $70k group program launch shortly after working with her, and that wouldn’t have been possible without Celinne. A few months later, I scaled to a 7-figure business. I highly recommend her to business owners and entrepreneurs looking to take their business to the next level and turn their brand into a legacy.

- Sabrina Phillipp, Online Business Coach, USA


I reached out to Celinne because I knew that I was not delivering my true message as I really wanted to and I knew that I was putting at risk the value of my brand and of how it would have been perceived by the people I want to serve. It was thanks to a brand identity workshop with Celinne that I finally felt that my message, my story was aligned with what I stand for and what I was trying to communicate but I was failing at until then. Celinne has the unique talent to bring into surface your most true story, your message in the most authentic and powerful way.

- Massimo Filasieno, Founder & CEO of Leading Interview, Dublin, Ireland


Celinne has a special talent for digging into the truth of things. With her, I went way more in-depth about why I started my business and for whom. She got rid of my sales pitch, and made it a beautiful human story, way more fun to tell! We all have this real reason inside us, but it is so hard to discover it on your own. When you hire Celinne, she will change the way you sell your business, and it won’t feel like selling it anymore. I am happy that we can continue to work together since it is so valuable for Coworkparadise and myself!

- Michael Tesselaar, Founder of Coworkparadise, The Netherlands

Sitting down with Celinne to break down my company’s vision has really made me connect the dots, within just a few hours. Her ability to ask the right questions and poke the right spots, while keeping track of the progress of the break-down is really admirable. I would highly recommend any business owner who’s looking to have clarity on how to execute on their vision to have a branding workshop with Celinne. You will be able to determine what your company stands for and add value there, but more so, gain understanding of what your core is as a person. And that’s something that is valuable for life!

- Bram van Turnhout, Commercial Director & Co-Owner of BRM Lasermachines, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The nomad’S oasis

I spent close to a year putting my fate into the hands of  strangers around the world.

What happens when you design a life that incorporates all your passions… and just start living it? Two years ago, I did just that: I quit my corporate advertising job, packed a carry-on, and set out to prove that I could circumnavigate the globe exclusively by staying with people with whom I shared a real human connection (friends, friends of friends, people I met on the road, etc). I spent close to a year putting my fate into the hands of people—mostly strangers—around the world, and an astonishing +70 people in countries across four continents opened their homes to me. I’ve sat at the feet some of the most amazing storytellers in the world: Balinese healers, Burmese guerilla fighters, Amazonian tribal chiefs… all people who command a room and get people to listen by speaking to their hearts. The Nomad’s Oasis documents this journey, exploring what it means to be human and how sharing our stories beautifies this process by opening a path to self-discovery, connection, and transformation.

Words Beyond Translation: Ojalá

Cusco, Peru How often does what we desperately wish for come true? Ojalá has always been one of my favorite Spanish words, perhaps precisely for the magic and the possibility that it holds. Although it is directly translated to “hopefully,” ojalá actually derives from...
