She spent a year channeling her love of telling stories into securing media placements client like Discount Tire, the nation’s largest independent tire dealer; JPI, a Dallas-based luxury apartment developer; and The Salvation Army.

In 2018, Chelsea joined in Brand Management team at The Richards Group where she is part of a team that oversees and manages The Salvation Army’s national advertising.

Chelsea enjoys spending time with her husband, Kevin, black Lab, Hank, and dachshund, Tooter; leaving Yelp reviews for up-and-coming restaurants around Dallas; and pretending she’s the next Joanna Gaines.
