Chelsea grew up in the foothills outside of Sacramento, and rejoined her family and her roots in Southern California as a young adult. She spent two years in El Salvador in the Peace Corps and has spent the last ten years ensuring all kids have access to a great education. She believes that neighborhoods are the heartbeat of cities, and that active community engagement is essential to a thriving society.
She and her husband EJ moved to the neighborhood in 2017, and they have enjoyed being an active part of the community. Chelsea has a B.A. in international Relations from Chico State and a Master's in Public Administration from USC's Price School.
