Welcome

Hi! You’ve met professional Chelsie. Now here’s the rest of me…

Chef, entrepreneur and single mom – cooking up a purpose driven life with an award-worthy 3 year old on my hip. I have two twin boxer sisters who I love more than life (but still regularly tell to go play in traffic), a lover of vegetables, fitness fanatic, committed self-developer & amateur table dancer. At any given time there are no shortage of hats that I’m wearing – but I always say – if you want something done, give it to a mother.

Like most, I have not weathered this life without my share of challenges, all of which have lead me to right here where I am today. I used to be very hesitant to speak about my life because it felt simultaneously arrogant and self-righteous to think my life experience could add value to someone else’s. However, the more I connect with others the more I realize how un-alone I am in what my mind mulls on and it has been through sharing that I’ve personally experienced the most profound breakthroughs so here I am.

The intention of this page is to share the filter-less musings that fuel me through my days. You know, not the things a business needs to know if they’re hiring me to design a menu but things like what I pack in my kid’s lunch box, how to hold a knife so you don’t cut your fingers off, Mom-hacks of how to sneak workouts in when you literally have ZERO spare time and how I found my voice to respond to the woman Mom-shamming me at the playground.

What I have to share won’t be for everyone. Take what you like, leave the rest. If something I share helps even one other person then it was worth it. Life is hard. It’s also simultaneously beautiful.

Don’t wait for life to be easy to be happy. I am grateful you are here and I look forward to connecting.
