Chelsea was born and raised in Southern West Virginia and enjoys sharing her love of the Mountain State with everybody she can. Chelsea began her career at ACE as a zipline guide, and after earning her degree in Journalism from West Virginia University, moved to the marketing department where she filled the role of Social Media Coordinator.

When she’s not writing about how amazing West Virginia is, you can find her climbing, hiking, and playing in the New River Gorge with her 7-year-old son Holden and two puppers, Zelda and Newton.
