Chelsea holds a B.A. from Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, CT, where she studied English and Creative Writing. She interned with a non-profit, Hill-Stead Museum, Farmington, CT as a Sunken Garden Poetry Festival Events and Marketing Intern. There, Chelsea mastered implementation of the setup and breakdown of each festival as well as marketed and strategized future events. After graduating, she joined the Communications Department for Community Health Center, Inc. under AmeriCorps in Connecticut, where she handled public relations, social media, and event planning for the underserved communities across the state. She also did many volunteer activities and events with AmeriCorps to help Connecticut residents live a healthier lifestyle. Along with the tools she developed, she gravitated towards community outreach and enjoyed the impact it provided to those in need. That passion led her to St. John’s Episcopal Church where she enjoys being the Parish Administrator and Communications Director to help the Rector and assist in the multiple ministries led by parishioners of St. John’s Church.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with Bryan and their red retriever puppy, Cooper, and reading, along with taking the occasional spinning class and meeting parishioners furry friends when they stop by the office!​
