Hello! I’m Chelsie. Nice to meet you 👋

I graduated from California Polytechnic State University – San Luis Obispo with a B.A. in Communication Studies and minors in Chinese, Ethnic Studies, and Science and Risk Communications in 2021.

My experience is with written and spoken communications, interdisciplinary research methods, and digital content strategy. I’m currently a Research Analyst with FleishmanHillard True Global Intelligence.

fun stuff about me

I really like board games and tabletop RPGs! My favorites at the moment are Splendor and D&D 5E, but I always end up playing Phase 10?

I have a soft spot for silly gnomes ✨

Home cooking is just my style. I enjoy making good food for my family and friends!

There’s something about blasting music and cutting vegetables to wrap-up the day…🍲

work i’m really excited about
