Chelsea’s lifelong love of writing has led her to a variety of experiences in her career, from journalism to public relations to academia. Her attention to detail and ability to tell great stories are an asset to Wixted and Company clients seeking to share their message and hone their voice.
For several years, Chelsea was a reporter for community newspapers in Iowa, Oregon and Montana. Her coverage ranged from education to crime to government, and everything in between. Her reporting even helped earn her small Oregon newspaper its first-ever statewide first place award for public service journalism.
She returned to her alma mater, Iowa State University, to work for several more years as a communications specialist helping to share the stories of faculty and staff research and student success with external audiences. Her work included media relations, communications strategy and social media management. In her spare time, she earned her master’s degree, including co-authoring a study on newspaper coverage of women’s political firsts that appeared in a prestigious academic journal.
Chelsea has master’s and bachelor’s degrees in Journalism and Mass Communication from Iowa State University.
