Chelsea hails from Placerville, California, a small town at the base of the Sierra Foothills. She spent her youth chasing ladybugs in her family’s garden and splashing in the rivers of the deep forests of Northern California. When she became old enough to work, she found jobs in the fair industry, planning local non-profit agricultural and arts events. Chelsea moved east to study at Fordham University, and in between classes, she would make a beeline to the New York Botanical Garden, reveling in the beauty and fresh air. After a stint in corporate fashion, she began searching for a career that gave her the sense of community building she had felt working in fairs. When she's not at the farm, sharing her passion for sustainable living with the thousands of visitors she hosts each season, she's usually at the Greenpoint yoga studio she manages, studying to become a yoga instructor and spreading the gospel of holistic and sound healing.
