Chelsea’s sailing career began with the acquisition of a little wooden sloop in the harbor of Baltimore. From there she made it to the Florida Keys where she began sailing professionally while maintaining and living on the vintage yacht. She grew up in Texas and has always been attracted to the water. After studying Biochemistry for her undergraduate she pursued molecular diagnostics and worked in R&D with infectious diseases for about 6 years. She was looking for a career change and that is when she stumbled upon the sloop and the rest is history. There is nothing more fulfilling to her than being out on the open ocean growing, teaching, and learning with her crew and students.
