Chelsea Sanford

Pronouns: she/her

Chelsea is passionate about the intersection of business, equity, and sustainability. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences. After graduating, her passion for rock climbing and skiing brought her to Bishop, California. In the Eastern Sierra, the negative effects of climate change are apparent in the shrinking glaciers and the desertification of Owen’s Valley. This firsthand experience motivated her to pursue a career in environmental management. Prior to Bren, Chelsea worked in corporate sustainability to reduce the environmental impacts of various small businesses. She managed California Green Business Certifications by assessing environmental impacts, reducing purchasing, making building improvements, and implementing policy. Chelsea plans to expand this work to larger corporations by specializing in Business and Sustainability with a specific interest in social justice. She looks forward to building her career around finding equitable business solutions to the climate crisis.
