About Support for Chelsea
Chelsea has led AFFEO’s programs in Asia and Africa since 2014. Chelsea became involved in the orphan crisis while serving in Southeast Asia. She became known locally as the “orphan lady” as she connected hospitals with local orphan care NGOs, often rescuing abandoned children and finding placements for children with special needs.
In addition to her work in the field, Chelsea studied at Peninsula Community College, Seattle Pacific University and completed a Communication & Design course through the University of Nations in Switzerland. When she's not busy working for A Family For Every Orphan, she's pouring her energy and heart into Amma’s Umma, her online fair trade boutique that also raises funds for adoptions!
Chelsea and her husband Amith currently live in the Pacific Northwest. She is an adoptive mama to their sweet son from India, and hope to move back someday.
