I would be remiss if I didn't first acknowledge what a privilege it was for me to personally meet Chelsea at our annual Presidential Leadership Summit. I immediately felt connected to her and was blown away by the care that she showed our students throughout the weekend. Aside from the excitement of meeting her, I was blown away by her presentation and the attention she gave to every individual that she came in contact with. Throughout the conference, students had the opportunity to schedule individual coaching sessions with Chelsea. Word about how impactful those sessions were spread like wildfire and before we knew it, sessions were booked and students were downstairs at 7 AM just hoping for a chance to meet her. Thank you Chelsea for your commitment to the comprehensive (mind, body, soul) well being of people.
