Chelsey discovered her love for student affairs while working as a Peer Advisor at Chico State University in northern California, where she received her B.A. in International Relations and Latin American Studies. She absolutely loved having the opportunity to engage with new students and encourage their involvement and excitement in being part of the campus community while choosing degrees that would allow them to explore and follow their passions.
Chelsey received her Master of Science in Educational Leadership and Policy from Portland State University, and values a holistic approach to the higher education experience that allows students to attend to their emotional, physical, and social health as well as their academic and career goals.
Originally from Portland, Oregon, Chelsey loves reading fiction novels, writing short stories, spending days at the beach whenever possible, hiking, and daydreaming of her next international trip. She loves exploring her new city, and is always looking for great food cart recommendations!
