Chelsea is OBSESSED with "Game of Thrones" & anything relating to it. She prefers villainesses in stories to the princesses (unless they're queens, like Elsa or Daenerys). And, if you’re looking for her in a crowded room or on the sidelines, you can't miss her as she stands just under 6'3" flat foot!

Her vision is to open a cheer, dance & performance art facility to share her passion, innovation & creativity with the community while helping build confidence, body positivity & self-love awareness which she is an advocate for.
