Chelsea is an explorer. From the small town and swampland of Mattawan outside of Kalamazoo, Chelsea is in her own when exploring nature. She once swam with manatees, which she describes as an unexpectedly terrifying experience, treading water beside mammoth sea being is not as serene as one might expect. Chelsea brings smart design thinking to JBID. She loves sketching and rendering interior space, a natural match for her steady hand and imaginative mind. Chelsea’s contagious energy for adventure typically begins with a caffeine-propelled dash out of the house in the morning. She can be found studying in the interior design and illustration departments at Kendall College of Art and Design with tumbler and earbuds at hand or in the office with the JBID team wearing her favorite slippers.
