Cofounder of Rō Fitness, a local indoor rowing studio in Austin, TX. The studio was launched in early 2014 and opened the second studio in early 2016.
Chelsea has been coaching rowing since 2009. She rowed at the University of Oklahoma on the inaugural varsity team. She was a two-time Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) National Scholar-Athlete, selected as CRCA All-Region, second team and Conference USA Rowing All-Conference Team. Her coaching experience ranges from coaching a collegiate Division 1 team at the University of Oklahoma to coaching high school and masters rowers at the Austin Rowing Club. The varied levels of on-the-water coaching, in addition to indoor rowing specific coaching inspired her to take the leap and start Rō in early 2014 to bring the indoor rowing workout to rowers and non-rowers alike.
