Chelsea was a talented and ambitious junior at Millard West High School where she was on the editorial staff of the school paper, and was involved in the Speech and Debate Club. She was a 4.0 student throughout her academic years, excelling in math and sciences.

Chelsea was a memorable person, caring and loving people of all ages. She spent time babysitting, tutoring students in math and science, and participating in her church's mission youth outreach. She enjoyed public speaking, piano, dance, softball, and canoeing. She loved spending time with her many friends enjoying outdoor activities, movies and her newest hobby, driving. One of her great delights was vacationing in Lusk visiting friends, and family.
