I'm Chelse, a versatile individual with a passion for connecting with others and making a meaningful impact. My journey began at Azusa Pacific University, where I pursued my Bachelor's degree in English with a focus on Creative Writing. It was there that I discovered my love for both literature and the art of communication.

After earning my degree, I embarked on a fulfilling career in education, serving as a middle school English language arts teacher for five years. During this time, I had the privilege of teaching Applied Digital Skills for six years, empowering students with valuable digital literacy. Additionally, I served as an ASB advisor for four years, fostering a sense of community and belonging among students.

In 2022, I made the bold decision to transition into the dynamic world of finance. Currently, I am diligently studying as I pursue my new career path. What excites me most about this transition is the opportunity to leverage my skills in communication and relationship-building to serve clients effectively.

My passion lies in connecting with others and creating inclusive environments where everyone feels valued and seen. I thrive on organizing client events and interactions, as it allows me to fulfill my mission of helping people feel involved and accepted.

As I continue to grow and evolve professionally, I am committed to making a positive difference in the lives of those I encounter. Whether in education or finance, my ultimate goal remains the same: to uplift and empower others through meaningful connections and genuine care.
