Chelsea brings a wealth of experience and passion to her role. She earned her degree in Social Work at the University of Michigan, specializing in Interpersonal Practice with Children and Youth. She has worked as a therapist for children and families, working with at-risk youth and justice-involved youth. This population is important to Chelsea because she believes that intervening and providing support to children is the best way to ensure that they can grow into adults with positive coping skills and the ability to maintain healthy relationships. Beyond her professional endeavors, Chelsea is an avid animal lover who actively supports local animal shelters and rescues.
