Chelsea is a proud Tennessean, who is passionate about the nonprofit community and aligning multiple sectors to work together for greater change. Her passion for nonprofit work was ignited during her time at Cumberland University, where she received Bachelor degrees in Psychology and Humanities & Social Sciences, followed by a Masters degree in Public Service Management.

After launching her career in higher education, Chelsea continued to feel the pull toward nonprofit work and serving others. In 2016, she officially joined the sector and loves getting to work alongside people passionate for Middle Tennessee and its diverse population. As CNM’s Senior Manager of Membership & Database, she oversees Salute to Excellence, works with our member agencies and partners, and helps organizations navigate how to best utilize CNM’s resources, database, and job board.

Chelsea’s other passions include her sweet fur-baby Libby, zeal for coffee, and weaving sarcasm, songs, and jokes into everyday conversations.

Ask Chelsea about: how to maximize membership at CNM, job postings, wedding planning, how much she loves Moira Rose, and how to become a three-time county fair hula hoop champion (trophies available upon request).
