Meet the 2011-2012 YPS Executive Team! (Cody & Celeste)

Rebuilding Together Seattle is proud to announce the 2011-2012 Young Professionals Society (YPS) Executive Team: Cody Moore and Celeste Reilly!


Rebuilding Together veteran, Cody Moore served for two years as Program Director for Rebuilding Together Spokane, helping the affiliate achieve instrumental growth in projects completed, development efforts, volunteer commitment, and project values. He now works in Seattle in Public Relations and food safety advocacy for Marler Clark, the nation’s foremost law firm dedicated to representing victims of serious foodborne illness.

A product of the Palouse, Cody is a proud Pullman High School and Washington State University alumnus and is engaged to Laura Bagby, a fellow WSU graduate. They live in Woodinville with their two dogs, Manny and Gary. Gary is also from Pullman.

Cody believes Rebuilding Together is unique in that it brings immediate, tangible and positive change to both those in need and the community members who choose to get involved. He hopes to work hard to lead YPS in leaving an indelible mark on the homeowners it assists, as well as its members and the community at large.

Born and raised in Seattle, WA, Celeste recently moved back to the Pacific Northwest after nine plus years of living in Southern California. Celeste is an alumna of Holy Names Academy. She also is an alumna of the University of Southern California with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science and Minor in French.

Celeste developed her passion for community service in high school and college. She is now a member of the nationally recognized Alpha Phi Omega (Community Service Co-Ed Fraternity) and has helped organize USC’s annual “Spirits in Action” (an alternative to the Special Olympics). She is excited to volunteer in the community and get back in touch with young professionals in the greater Seattle area.

Celeste currently works at Starbucks Coffee Company as the Sr. Legal Administrative Assistant for the Corporate & Securities Division of Law & Corporate Affairs. Among other things, this position allows her to pursue her interest in the law and keep a steady supply of coffee on hand.

Outside of work, you’ll find Celeste walking around Greenlake or going on hikes in the nearby mountains with friends and family. She just walked from Ballard to Richmond Beach and is excited to ride her new bike around the city. She is also a yoga and volleyball enthusiast. Please reach out to her if you are too!

Celeste’s hopes for YPS: “My hopes are that we (as group) 1. nurture a strong connection with more young professionals who are enthusiastic about RTS’ mission of giving back to the community, and 2. create a sustainable and recognized group to empower more young professionals in the surrounding area and have a great environment to network.”
