Born and raised in New York and Washington, DC, Celia Adamec has lived in Colorado since 1997. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Art History from Yale University and a Master’s in Museum and Field Studies from the University of Colorado in Boulder. She has worked for the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, WY; the CU Natural History Museum; the Golden History Center; and spent over 6 years at Denver Botanic Gardens where she coordinated and oversaw adult public programs, lecture and film series, and professional symposia. She went on to co-found and manage a small urban farm in Arvada, CO where she grew heirloom vegetables and flowers for a CSA and three local farmer’s markets, and earned a Certificate from the Building Urban Farmers program at Colorado State University. Celia still loves to garden, and keeps a small flock of heritage breed chickens at her home in Salida.
Before her time in the nonprofit field, Celia worked in property management, starting as a leasing agent in Longmont and eventually being promoted to property manager for a 144-unit apartment complex in Boulder. It is this experience which ultimately led her to real estate as a second career. She and her husband own and manage several rental properties in Arvada and Salida and own a family business in Salida that offers home watch, vacation rental management, home remodeling and decorating services.
Celia moved to Salida in Fall of 2015 with her husband and 3-year-old daughter after spending many years camping, hiking and mountain biking in the Arkansas River Valley and never wanting to go home after the fun was over. They love being so close to their favorite wilderness areas and being able to see the stars at night, and are looking forward to raising their daughter in this beautiful and close-knit mountain community.
