Chelsea provides trauma-informed aftercare for survivors and coordinates our internship program.
Chelsea received her undergraduate degree in social work from Eastern Michigan University, where she became passionate about advocating for women in under-served populations and gained knowledge on the issue of human trafficking. Here she worked at a community center training volunteers and working with individuals in crisis, growing her abilities in direct service and community outreach.
She obtained her graduate degree in social work with a specialization in nonprofit management from Loyola University Chicago. While helping to strengthen the network of childhood crisis response teams in Illinois, she began working with a team of childhood trauma specialists and studying the work of trauma researcher Bruce Perry. Seeing the effects of complex trauma and the incredible work being done in this field, Chelsea’s desire to become a trauma-informed care specialist was born.
Having now made a home in Nashville, Chelsea is excited to be part of the team at End Slavery Tennessee where she can combine her two passions to help empower others and cultivate a community focused on self-love and healing.
In her spare time, Chelsea enjoys acting as a doula for new and expecting moms, exploring Nashville, and sipping a good cup of coffee.
