(Marketing & Communications Manager)
Caelus has always pushed for a more welcoming and inclusive environment after serving her campus community as one of two women within Mocs Esports. As someone who has spent their life within online spaces, Caelus aspires to use real-life examples paired with community desires and feedback to create environments that best serve those who inhabit it. Their new role with Femme Gaming as Marketing and Communications Manager is proving to be a promising and exciting venture, and they cannot wait to continue advocating for women and inclusivity in gaming spaces with the organization.
The release of Overwatch in 2016 elevated Caelus’ McKeel from casual to competitive gaming. After attending their freshman year of college at Florida Southern College in 2017, they worked to join the official staff of a burgeoning esports program and push for the start of an Overwatch team. It was here at Mocs Esports that Caelus served as the Social Media Coordinator and Graphic Designer, a Mocs Esports varsity athlete and eventual team captain, and the official Team Mom of all the collegiate teams throughout their undergraduate career. Caelus graduated Summa Cum Laude with her Bachelor of Science in Communications with a concentration in Digital Media.
