Chelsie serves as our event planning specialist, fundraising guru, and volunteer liaison. Born and raised in Hawaii, Chelsie ventured to New York City shortly after high school to pursue a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the American Musical & Dramatic Academy. With her ability to take on and succeed in management roles, Chelsie prides herself on the lasting impressions she has left behind with the teams she has worked with.
Since moving back home in 2008, Chelsie found herself in joining grassroots organizations, such as Dress for Success Honolulu, and serving as Vice President on the Board of Directors for her University Laboratory School Alumni Association. Chelsie also has an extensive background in retail management, customer service, marketing, and event coordination.
Chelsie’s guilty pleasure is drinking boba milk teas—she’d have the sugary, delicious, chewy treats every day if she could.
“I feel inspired by the passion of our team every day, and it motivates me to work harder. I want our future generations to enjoy what we have enjoyed and to leave Hawaii better than we found it.“
