Celestina Rodriguez, BA, MA is the Chief of Police, City of Phoenix. Celestina’s Mother was six feet tall. Her Father was six feet five. As an only child, Celestina was gifted with her grandmother’s height of only five feet four. However, today she finds herself sitting on a stage waiting to hear her name called and to take the oath to become the first female Chief of Police for a major U.S. Metropolitan area. In her response to the question, “how did you get here,” she shares an insightful chronological breakdown of the “stops” along the way and the “leadership growth” that was required of her to pull it off. In the end, it was something that her Father told her years earlier − about being a leader − that was a major factor in her life’s success and for her earning the opportunity to be selected as Phoenix’s new Chief of Police.
