Chelsea joined the High Hopes team as Program Director in the summer of 2019 and she is a Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor. She began volunteering at High Hopes in 2006 when she moved to Waterford and had graduation requirements to complete 25 community service hours.

Almost 800 volunteer hours later, Chelsea is thrilled to be at High Hopes in a new capacity. Volunteering at High Hopes inspired Chelsea to work with people with disabilities and learning differences- during college, her career goal was to “run High Hopes summer camp year-round” (which her professors informed her was not a “real job”).

She studied Psychology and Special Education at Salve Regina and completed her Masters’ degree in Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Connecticut. During school, Chelsea became interested in research and managed several projects on disability studies that were presented at regional and national conferences. Most recently, Chelsea was Transition Program Director at The Glenholme School in Washington, CT. She has taught General Psychology and Lifespan Development as an Adjunct Professor at Tunxis Community College since 2014 and lives in Wethersfield with her rescue dog, Harper, and husband, Erich.

Chelsea rides dressage and has an affinity for off the track thoroughbreds.
