Ms. Miles Celistan is the founder and chief executive officer of Arise & Shine Haven for Homeless Women and Children in Los Angeles.
A U.S. Navy veteran with four years of active duty and six years with the Naval Reserve, she served with AmeriCorps before becoming a women's outreach coordinator for U.S.VETS, where she helped develop our ADVANCE women's program. Ms. Miles-Celistan's knowledge of the problems faced by female veterans comes from hard-earned personal experience Having suffered sexual abuse at the hands of a superior officer during active duty, she sank into homelessness and substance abuse following her separation from service and managed to turn her life around with the help of U.S.VETS and its chairman, Stephen Peck. She earned a certification as a Drug and Alcohol Counselor from UCLA, a Bachelor of Arts degree in business from the University of La Verne, and two Master's degrees from the University of Phoenix - a Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA). She was elected to the U.S.VETS board in December 2006.
