Chelsea is a Colorado Native who loves the outdoors, art, and science; but most of all being the mom to a little nature lover! Growing up in an adventurous family who were involved in girl scouts, camping, and road trips shaped Chelsea into someone who loves exploring, traveling, and taking care of the planet.
While pursuing her first degree in Biology, Chelsea worked as a lifeguard and swim instructor to children of all ages. After graduating and working in a cancer research lab for several years she decided that she needed to be involved with something more meaningful and people oriented. In 2019, she graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Colorado.
Working in her first job as a RN with children in crises during the pandemic and expecting her own little one was an adventure within itself. Chelsea and her husband Stefan welcomed their sweet girl Lydia in December of 2020 and the greatest adventure of all officially began.
Since becoming a mother, Chelsea has continued to work as a Registered Nurse once a week in the Neurology Department at Swedish Medical Center. During the other 6 days of the week she and Lydia (and dad too) love to bake together, swim, play music, go to the zoo, and much more! They are currently in their second year of trying to be outside for 1000 hours in one year! Every year the little family looks forward to hiking trips as well as out of state and eventually international trips! Chelsea and Lydia are especially excited to be a part of Wild Beginnings in order to share their love of the outdoors with others.
