“As a design partner, Chelsea's knowledge of the product, understanding of our business goals, and empathy for our customers enable her and her team to create successful solutions. As a team leader, her empathy for all the individuals on the team, desire to provide clear guidance, and continual push to up-level our working model makes her a great partner to collaborate with on the never-ending list of team challenges.”
“Chelsea is a natural leader and advocates both for her team and the customer. On multiple occasions during my time at Highspot, we had turnover that left some crews without a design leader and Chelsea was always the one to step in and make sure that every area had support.”
“Chelsea was detail-oriented throughout the design process and always considered the full scope of use cases... she remained calm and level-headed during our short-turn deadlines.”
“Chelsea is a strategic thinker, able to identify areas for improvement and implement solutions that drive positive change. Her dedication to setting clear goals and priorities, coupled with exceptional organizational skills, enables her to manage multiple projects with ease.”
