Chelsea learned to paddle at a Power Olympic Outdoor Center clinic that was done in Wimberley by Red River friend, Melinda Everett, and her Century 21 clients.  Chelsea took to the boats immediately, and has not stopped since!!

Chelsea is a lively and determined competitor.  Always out to give 110% while keeping things fun!!  She is only 11 years old, but has already proved how much she loves this sport!  This year Chelsea placed 1st at this years Junior Trials for Cadet Women, and even placed 4th among the Juniors on the first day of racing!

“I really like kayaking cause it always gives me something fun to do it helps me work hard and I can make new goals ,  right now my goal is to win gold in this coming  JO's. My coaches Ben And Michelle Kvanli really push me to do well,  My kayaking friends Ben Michelle, Jeff, Ruthie, Josh, EJ, Emily, and Dane really support me!”
