Biography: Chelsea spends most of her time searching Nevada's mountains and archives for evidence of early Hispanic mining activity in the Silver State. This research for her thesis combines her background in Spanish and Spanish American Studies with her interest in Nevada's land and culture. 

When she isn't busy with research, she's often out in the desert anyway, camping, landsailing, or looking for hot springs.
