Senior Sales Manager, Meetings and Conventions
As a Senior Sales Manager of meetings and conventions, Chelsey travels across the country showing corporate events and conference planners that Upstate NY is the place to be! Some of her favorite places to have worked at include San Diego, Burlington, Louisville, and Houston. As a lifelong resident of CNY, and a 6-year resident of the Tipperary Hill neighborhood in Syracuse, you can often find Chelsey playing with her Bernedoodle Oliver at the James Pass Arboretum, or catching up with friends on the patios at Blarney Stone and Coleman’s. When she is not working, Chelsey loves cooking, enjoying great coffee, browsing the CNY Regional Market, and refinishing thrifted furniture. Two things most people do not know about Chelsey is that she has 15 years of dance training, including ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop and modern styles. Also, she has broken all of her fingers at least once!
