Chelsea was born and raised in Virginia. She graduated from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA with a bachelor’s degree in 2014 and a master’s degree in teaching in 2015. After teaching in VA for a year she moved to Greensboro to be an informal educator.
During those two years working with a variety of animals at the GSC and interning at a wildlife sanctuary, she learn that animals were her true passion. She and her (grumpy) Hedgehog; Clara, moved to Chapel Hill to join the Dogwood Team! In her spare time she enjoys swimming, working out, making costumes and volunteering in aquariums and with wildlife rehab organizations. We are happy to have Chelsea!
