Staff Attorney [YEAR:S Program]
Chelsea is a restorative justice facilitator and juvenile advocate attorney with the Youth:Education, Advocacy & Restorative Services program. With previous experience in community-based restorative justice practices, Chelsea was drawn to the LRC because of its commitment to supporting young people and their communities through its holistic juvenile defense program and its participation in support-based family group conferencing.
Before she was an attorney, Chelsea worked as a high school English and Reading teacher in New Orleans, where she was humbled by the incredible resiliency of her students. It was there that Chelsea knew she wanted to dedicate her work to supporting the empowerment of young people.
