More About CHELSEA

What do you love about your work?

I love hearing people’s stories. I get excited to find out what makes a person tick, delve into their background and learn about their experiences, achievements and goals for the future.

What’s the single most important thing a prospective client needs to know about you?

I am relentless.

What’s the best piece of advice (personal or professional) you’ve ever received?

My late godfather Richard Carlson, author of the “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” book series, used to say, “You are what you practice most.” I have carried that thought with me throughout my professional and personal life. It is a great reminder to step back, reevaluate and adjust as necessary.
