As a child, Chelsea’s dream was to be a ballerina, and for many years, she took classes at Ballet Arts (now Boulder Ballet) in Boulder, Colorado, ulitimately, she decided to study film production at the University of Colorado at Boulder where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in film studies. While there she shot films on Super 8, 16 mm, and various video formats, as well as exploring documentary, narrative, and experimental forms of filmmaking.


Realizing that teaching would be the ideal accompaniment to her filmmaking, she went on to earn a Master of Fine Arts from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She has taught at several colleges and her films have played in various festivals throughout the United States and across North Carolina on television. Her first feature film, Drowning Slowly, won best narrative feature at the Ava Gardner Film Festival in 2009.
