Celeste Yarnall has led a multi-faceted life. She began her career as a model, spokesperson and actress. In 1964, she won the coveted, "Miss Rheingold" title receiving 20,000,000 votes. Celeste traveled all over the Eastern Seaboard as their spokesperson making personal appearances, doing television and radio commercials and print ads as the 25th ambassadress for Rheingold Beer. Both the beer and the contest have been recently reprised in New York.

 Celeste has done numerous feature films such as "Live a Little, Love a Little" opposite Elvis Presley. In the film, Elvis sings "A Little Less Conversation" to her. This song was recently remixed and became the #1 hit in twelve countries. She starred in "The Velvet Vampire" for Roger Corman and has appeared in many television shows including guest starring roles on "(Classic) Star Trek," "Bonanza," "Hogan's Heroes," "Land of the Giants," "It Takes a Thief," "Man From U.N.C.L.E.," and many others too numerous to mention. Celeste was a "Deb Star" at the Hollywood Stars of Tomorrow awards in 1967 and was the Mid-Eastern National Association of Theater Owners Most Promising New Star of 1968.

On the business end of show biz, Celeste managed several talented screenwriters, including the writer of "On Deadly Ground" starring Steven Seagal.

Celeste graces the cover of a book by Tom Lisanti entitled Fantasy Femmes of 60's Cinema, as well being highlighted in another book, Film Fatales, by Tom Lisanti and Louis Paul. She was also featured in the April 2002 edition of Femme Fatales magazine and was selected as Miss April in the 2002 "Swinging Chicks of the 60's" calendar featuring a photo of her from the film "Eve."

Between 1979 and 1993, Celeste owned and operated a commercial real estate business which specialized in assisting companies either lease or purchase their office headquarters.

In 1993, Celeste embarked on another exciting challenge - to simultaneously write a holistic healthcare book for cats entitled Cat Care, Naturally for Charles E. Tuttle Publishing, a prestigious Boston based company, as well as breed, raise and show ten generations of championship Tonkinese and Oriental Shorthair cats who are reared on a natural raw meat/poultry diet and supplements. Her second book, Natural Dog Care, was released in Spring of 1998 along with an updated paperback version of her cat book now entitled Natural Cat Care. Both books were also released in hardback format by Castle Books. Celeste's newest book, The Complete Guide to Holistic Cat Care, was written with leading holistic veterinarian, Dr. Jean Hofve, for Quarry Publications and is due out mid October 2009.

Also in 1998, Celeste earned a Ph.D. in Nutrition from Pacific Western University where she serves as an adjunct professor of nutrition. She has extensively researched the nutritional needs of pets and discovered a cornucopia of holistic nutritional alternatives for pets. Celeste had her own radio show entitled "Celestial Pets" for Renaissance Radio KFNX Phoenix and, in October of 1999, attended the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association's annual conference (held in Kaua'i) where she was one of the guest lecturers. She was the keynote speaker at the Learning Annex's Third Annual Natural Pet Expo in San Diego March 11, 2000. She was also featured in the episode "Mimosa: Tonkinese Cat" on the Animal Planet Channel show "That's My Baby." Celeste consults on clinical pet nutrition and alternative healing therapies (including homeopathy and herbal therapies) for cats and dogs and has written articles for several pet and health publications such as Natural Pet, Animal Wellness, Body, Mind & Spirit magazines, and The Whole Cat Journal which also featured her in an article entitled "The Advice of Experts" where she, Richard Pitcairn, DVM, and Anitra Frasier answered questions relating to the "holistic care taking of our feline friends."

Celeste's dog book is endorsed by prestigious Zone author, Barry Sears, Ph.D. Dr. Sears provided an essential fatty acid recipe for cats and dogs which Celeste markets under her Celestial Pets® line of cats and dogs, supplements. Celestial Pets® distributes herbs, homeopathics, and state-of-the-art clinical nutrition supplements to both their cat and dog clients and their human friends, as all the supplements come from sources whose ingredients are made for people. Celeste tells folks, "If I can't eat or take it myself, it's not good enough for the animals!" She works closely with holistic veterinarians and frequently lectures on alternative and complimentary medicine. She has studied NAET (Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique), is a Reiki Master, TAT practitioner (Tapas Acupressure Technique), and is accredited in Clinical Nutrition Therapy through the International Foundation For Nutrition And Health.

How does she do it all? She says, "I follow my own advice for pets . . . eat natural, healthful food, exercise, take supplements and antioxidants daily, and drink plenty of water . . . purified, of course. I seem to have plenty of energy left to enjoy life, spend time with my daughter and granddaughter, and travel extensively to memorabilia shows and conventions doing book signings and autographing photos.

Together with her partner, Imelda Casper, she operates a holistic consulting practice for people and their pets specializing in feline and canine nutrition. Although based in Southern California, Celeste consults with clients from all over the world.

Her hobbies include playing the harp and dancing Argentine Tango. She has dedicated her life to the health and well-being of animals.


Imelda Lopez-Casper

 

Imelda began working with Celeste Yarnall in 1984 as her personal assistant and office manager for Celeste's commercial real estate company, Celeste Yarnall & Associates. Imelda also worked alongside Celeste through her venture into personal management for screenwriters and then her transition into the world of natural nutrition and holistic healthcare for cats and dogs.

As a child, Imelda was always fascinated by the "big cats" and had even thought of becoming a vet for these exotic creatures. However, another passion took over, and Imelda went on to obtain a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Mount St. Mary's College in Los Angeles. To support her paint "habit," Imelda worked as office manager in medical offices. Disillusioned by the medical profession, she made the move to real estate and later obtained her own license. Always knowing this wasn't the life for her, Imelda was very happy to join Celeste's crusade of holistic pet care. "There are so many people caring for exotics properly, and there just aren't enough champions for our domesticated friends in caring for them the way Nature intended. This is what I'm supposed to be doing. I love my work, and there's such satisfaction in knowing that I'm helping cats and dogs live healthier and happier lives (and some people, too!). I don't know of too many other jobs where people actually call to say 'thank you!'" she says.

In 2000, Celeste and Imelda’s long-time working relationship and friendship evolved into a formal partnership in Celestial Pets®. Imelda has studied NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique), as well as Clinical Nutrition Therapy through the International Foundation For Nutrition And Health. Imelda’s art background has come in handy, having designed the Celestial Pets® company logos. Being pregnant while Celeste was writing her first book, Cat Care, Naturally (now Natural Cat Care), Imelda says helped her to learn how to better take care of her daughter, Grace. “Had I not learned about holistic healthcare and the dangers of vaccination, Grace would not be the super healthy young lady she is today.”

When not busy with her regular responsibilities, Imelda enjoys Salsa dancing. “Dancing is important for your well-being, too. It’s an excellent form of exercise, and it’s good for the soul!”
