Newborn & Infancy Experience:
Chelsea R. has professional experience caring for 12-month-old babies at a child care center. Her responsibilities included feeding, diapering, and promoting an environment of development. She enjoys working with this age because it is a time of first words, first steps, and first friends as the child starts to blossom exponentially.
Recreationally, Chelsea enjoys all the sunshine state has to offer such as beaching, boating, and exploring. Outside of academics, Chelsea also has a passion for dance. She currently teaches dance camps, choreographs, and judges competitions at the regional, national, and international levels. (She also loves a good dance party in the living room). Personally, she loves to stay active and enjoy the outdoors. You can find her on a jog with her dog, Maxine, or at the beach searching for sharks teeth.
