Dr. Chelsea Richard is an applied epidemiologist at the intersection of early childhood, education, and public health. She has a Ph.D. and MSPH in Epidemiology from the University of South Carolina and a BS in Biology from the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Throughout my journey, I have been able to apply these lessons to the development of others. I have had the privilege of mentoring several interns (one of which worked remotely from a refugee camp in Africa), graduate assistants, and practicum students. Through active listening and ongoing, bi-directional feedback, I have probably learned more from them than they ever have from me!
