Chelsey played every sport offered at her small school in west Texas, as well as club soccer and gymnastics. When told she would have to focus on no more than two sports in high school, she transferred schools so she could continue to dabble in as much activity as her calendar would allow. She finally narrowed her involvement to competitive cheerleading in college, deciding that being on the sideline at every sporting event was the next best thing to actually competing on the field. After graduating from Texas Christian University Chelsey began her career marketing various large consumer brands. A pro-bono project for the Women’s Sports Foundation ignited her creative juices and sparked her search for a way to transition into sports marketing; ultimately leading her to obtain her MBA from the University of Oregon’s Warsaw Sports Marketing Center. While in graduate school a handful of classmates challenged her to “Helen.” Never one to back down from a challenge, she accepted and soon thereafter caught the competition bug winning her first competition after just six weeks of CrossFit. She began competing for Brick in the Summer of 2012 and was a member of the 2013 and 2014 Brick Nation squads, which placed 3rd in the SoCal Regional both years.
