Chelsey's journey began as a collegiate track athlete at Tufts University in Massachusetts. Chelsey loves her

dog, Ryder, and has a passion for burlesque, women and gender studies, and psychology.

 

"My experiences at Tufts led to an easy transition to Widener University where I completed my Masters in Clinical Social Work and Masters in Education in Human Sexuality. Due to either masochism or an affinity for being a

lifelong learner (or maybe both), I moved directly into Widener’s PhD program in human sexuality which I completed in December of 2018. My dissertation focused on the intersections of social media usage, jealousy, and attachment theory for young adults.

 

Aside from my background in clinical sex therapy, I continue to run. And, (although I get mixed reviews on this)

stay true to my Massachusetts roots as a staunch Boston sports fan. I look forward to discussing more about my experiences studying sexuality, gender, and sexual health and the importance of promoting more open dialogue

on how they impact overall wellness."

Frequently described by friends as "a kid at heart" and "a truly spontaneous and fun-loving person," Shay always pushes people to take chances and live happier, more fulfilled lives. His passion, kindness, high energy, and super smarts are tools that he uses to push boundaries and go above and beyond in every aspect of life.

"Keeping that childlike sense of adventure is key to me for living a fulfilling life. When I'm not working, I'm busy romping around the incredible Southwest, shooting photos and videos to log it all in the memory banks. I try to be open-minded and keep a "why not" attitude, which has led me to the best friends and adventures I can imagine having."  - Shay
