Chelsea’s is an NTP (Nutritional Therapy Practitioner) with a Master’s in Education (adult). Her passion for food combined with her passion for keeping her family and herself in optimal health led to the creation of this blog.
Chelsea lives with her husband and two children in Snoqualmie, WA. Her interests in nutrition, health, and wellness intensified after encountering some big personal health issues. First, in her late 20’s she was diagnosed with Graves disease (possibly misdiagnosed) and underwent radioactive iodine therapy to kill off most of her thyroid, making her hypothyroid for the rest of her life. Second, she was diagnosed with Melanoma in 2009. She views these health challenges as blessings in disguise because through them she developed a passionate for alternative forms of healing and nutritional therapy.
Before becoming an NTP and community college instructor, she was an esthetician which is one of the reasons that there are a lot of homemade skincare recipes on the site. She also spent quite a bit of time in the restaurant industry which is where her passion for food and cooking first took hold.
