Pediatric Office Manager
Chelsea is the medical assistant and office manager of the Biloxi clinic. She received her Associate’s Degree in Clinical and Administrative Medical Assisting at Blue Cliff College in Gulfport, MS. Chelsea is currently working towards her nursing degree and proudly raising her young son. In her free time, she loves to paint and do crafts. Chelsea says the person she is most inspired by is her “momma.” Speaking of mothers, some great motherly advice can be found in her favorite quote by Dr. Seuss, “Step with care and great tact, and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act.” And probably most important to our patients, Chelsea really loves Pokemon and Iron Man! If your kid is fan of either they can talk to Mrs. Chelsea about them during their visit to help break the ice!
