Hello! Chelsea is excited to be joining Chicago Children’s House. She has been working with children for most of her life, in a variety of settings. Chelsea has been an Infant Daycare teacher, Sunday School and VBS teacher, Summer Camp Senior Counselor for families and children aged a few weeks to 18 years old, and Lead Afterschool teacher for a preschool/pre-k center and a grade school. Chelsea spent the summer of 2016 in Chicago with an internship at a pediatric therapy clinic. It was during this time that she became fond of the city and working with families here.
Originally from South Dakota, Chelsea moved to Chicago in 2017 to attend Erikson Institute. She recently graduated receiving her Master of Science in Child Development with a concentration in Administration. Chelsea has a B.A. in Psychology from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa.
Chelsea believes that every moment is a chance for children to develop communication, social, emotional, cognitive, and motor skills. As part of the administration team at CCH, she strives to create a space that is an extension of the home and provides every child with the support and care they need. She is thrilled to get to know everyone in the CCH community!
