Meet Our Instructors
Chelsea began her paramedic career in the small mountain town of Silverton, Colorado in 2011. Within her first year, she was the Assistant Director of Silverton Ambulance and an officer on San Juan County Search and Rescue. For the next five years, she was challenged with managing critical patients in a mountainous environment far from definitive medical care, and her WFR skills became more valuable than she ever could have imagined. Chelsea’s current focus is on avalanche rescue and technical rope rescue. She practices with multiple agencies in Silverton and is a firefighter/paramedic in Durango, CO. On any typical day, you can find Chelsea and her four-legged friend adventuring in the San Juan Mountains or soaking up the sun while fishing the Animas River.
