Chelsea is a brand leader, design thinker, and creative strategist with a decade of experience scaling brands across on and offline channels.
Often described as not fitting into a box, Chelsea considers herself equal parts right and left brain. She has a background in Marketing and Finance, but excels when collaborating with inspiring creators and designers. This led her to pursue a Masters of Science in Design Thinking, which honed her consumer-first approach to brand storytelling.
Her journey spans fashion, street art, real estate, hospitality and now science 🤓. At Seed, she spends her time developing brand experiences that amplify science, advocate for education and champion humanism.
In conversation with Chelsea:
Six word story of your life. She refused to pick a lane.
What was your first brush with science? I hate to say that this was my very first brush, but my curiosity to understand human biology was provoked during a Ms-Frizzle-led Magic School Bus excursion. Inside Ralphie, Season 1, episode 3. IYKYK.
Why do you think bacteria are important? It’s simple – we can’t live without them.
How do you define science? A method of testing and experimentation to acquire knowledge about ourselves and our natural world.
How do you define health? The optimal state of mental, social and physical well-being – a benchmark that everyone deserves to understand.
What are you currently reading / listening / watching? I Contain Multitudes – Ed Yong
Favorite microbiome-nurturing food? Artichokes.
Scientist, dead or alive, you’d like to eat with? Bessie Moses
Microbiome perturbation you’re trying to give up. Montreal bagels (hard to give up the taste of home).
Favorite science joke or best mindgasm fact? Bacteria have an unwarranted bad rap – 99% of them are harmless.
One fact most people don’t know about you: A have a birthmark on my neck that both my grandmother and brother have in the exact same position. Scientific explanation for that? TBD.
