Chelsea earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology at The Pennsylvania State University in 2012 and her Master of Physician Assistant Studies at Chatham University in 2014. Throughout her career she has spent time caring for patients in Adult Oncology, Internal Medicine and Pediatric Oncology.
She loves being a Physician Assistant because it gives her the opportunity to really get to know the people she takes care of and to help them with whatever problems they may be going through. Her goal is to make health care feel less stressful for patients whenever possible.
When she is not practicing medicine Chelsea likes to spend time outside with her husband, her family and her Bernese Mountain Dog, Miller. She loves skiing, camping, hiking and dog parks. She hopes to get Miller certified as a therapy dog so he can visit patients and help make them feel better.
Chelsea was born and raised in Erie and is thrilled to be back in her hometown to help take care of her community.
