Chelsea is the manager of Summersalt Gymnastics in Wonthaggi, and is dedicated to providing the best experience for the gymnasts and parents who attend her club.
Chelsea has been nominated as Hero of the Month by a parent of one of the gymnasts in her Little Groms class, for children ages 12-24 months.
“She just loves coming to Gymnastics. Chelsea is so good with the babies, and is so warm and welcoming to the parents and carers who attend. Both myself and my daughter feel so welcome and at home at Summersalt,” said the parent.
“It’s been so lovely having a fun, active sport and activity to involve my daughter in. We feel free to explore gymnastics even though I have no experience in the sport!”
Chelsea has a wealth of experience in sport, having completed a Bachelor of Exercise Science, Master of Business in Sports Management and previous work experience with the AFL and Calisthenics Victoria.
She also has an Early Childhood Education qualification, KinderGym and WAG accreditation as well as an Advanced Tumbling and Spring course.
Chelsea is passionate about delivering gymnastics to kids to build courage, resilience and determination that will stay with them for life.
Congratulations on the nomination Chelsea!
