Chelsea joined the board of Port Resources in February 2018 after matching with the organization through the Lift360 (now MANP) Emerging Leaders Program and is part of Port’s development committee. Chelsea graduated from Skowhegan Area High School in 2005 and obtained a BA in Sociology from the University of Maine in 2009.
Chelsea has been working in the field of Social Services since 2009, and has held various positions and worked with many populations of individuals including those with intellectual disabilities, adult mental health with co-occurring disorders, as well as the immigrant and refugee population. One position that she still holds most dear to her heart was her work with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Chelsea is excited to be part of Port’s board assisting all individuals to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives.
