Chelsea has just completed her master’s degree in journalism at UBC in Vancouver, and has a background in magazine publishing. She’s excited to be living in such a close-knit and involved community.

“Everyone here seems very involved with what’s going on around town, and everyone has been very welcoming,” she says.

Chelsea looks forward to the beginning of the ski season, but hopes to spend a little more time out hiking before the snow hits. She also needs to buy a good pair of winter boots before that happens.
