Chelsea graduated from Oregon State University with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and a minor in visual art. She joined Kittelson as a transportation analyst following an internship in Kittelson’s Portland office that extended to part-time work during her last few months of school. Chelsea was drawn to transportation because of the field’s first-hand nature as well as the variety and creativity of roadway and intersection design. She is also inspired by the role that transportation can play in creating sustainable communities. Since joining Kittelson, Chelsea has contributed to a variety of projects involving functional roundabout design, traffic signal design and operations, signing and striping plans, traffic control plans, and street lighting design and analysis. She has practical knowledge of software packages like Microstation, AutoCAD, AutoTURN, AGi32, and Synchro. Before joining Kittelson, Chelsea interned with the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and Clark County (Washington) Public Works. Outside of work, Chelsea enjoys spending time with family, being outdoors, dancing, and playing/listening to music.
