Chelsea MaherSenior Copywriter
Chelsea earned her B.A. in English with a concentration in Writing and Rhetoric from Salisbury University in 2011. Since then, she’s sought out as many opportunities to write as possible. She specializes in the study and practice of rhetoric, which is the art of persuasive writing that’s designed to have an effect on an audience. She loves words and thinks of writing good content like a puzzle, believing that each piece must be exactly in its place to make the whole thing work as one.
Besides writing, Chelsea’s dabbled in many other fields. She has her Associate’s Degree in Culinary Arts and cooks at home on a daily basis. She’s been a lifeguard, a nanny, a dog walker, coached a swim team, interned as a journalist, and, most recently, worked as a Marketing and Event Coordinator for a large medical supply company. She feels that all of these different experiences have not only improved her writing, but also allowed her to study different types of people and how they react differently to rhetoric and language.
In her spare time, Chelsea loves enjoying the lifestyle Denver has to offer. She’s an experienced skier of over 20 years who also recently became a mountain bike enthusiast. She’s made it a goal for herself to climb the highest point in every state, completing four so far. She enjoys nerf gun battles with her coworkers and playing ping pong and pool with her boyfriend. Last but not least, Chelsea’s a travel enthusiast who’s been to Ireland twice and hopes to add more visas to her passport very soon.
