         (smart) Aleck

A Jersey girl through and through, Chelsea Courtney was raised on a robust diet of outdoor adventure and James Taylor. (You thought I was going to say Springsteen...that's also true).

When not making an absolutely delicious mess in the kitchen, as any daughter of a chemist and home cook would, she’s finding new running routes through Central Park and destroying another game of Jeopardy.

She’s equal parts brains, brawn, intense stubbornness, and deep sensitivity, all shoved in a five-foot-one package. She’s a fierce leader with the passion and charm to back it up (just look at those pearly whites!).

By way of Philadelphia, Chelsea now resides in Manhattan where she’s working on her next self-produced project and still trying to prove she’s the best at everything.
