A dedicated and compassionate professional, Chelsea Krecko harbors a deep-rooted passion for serving her community and effecting positive change in the lives of those she encounters. Originally from Philadelphia, PA, Chelsea embarked on a new chapter of her life in 2020 when she relocated to Las Vegas, NV, bringing with her a wealth of experience and an unyielding desire to contribute to her new community. Chelsea's career in healthcare began in 2014 in the field of Occupational Therapy, a role through which she touched many lives by aiding individuals in regaining their functional abilities and independence. However, her continual aspiration to connect with and support others on a more interpersonal level led her to the realization that her true vocation lay in social work. This profound insight marked a pivotal shift in her career trajectory.
Her transition to social work was driven by her commitment to understanding the individual needs of people. Chelsea’s ability to empathize and her skills in problem-solving not only define her professional identity but also represent the core values she brings to her role every day.
Outside of her professional sphere, Chelsea is a loving fiancée and proud mother to a spirited six-year-old daughter, both of whom form the nucleus of her world. Her family is completed by Roscoe, the family dog, who is no less a member and shares in all their adventures. Chelsea's interests extend to a love for research and an insatiable appetite for reading, which not only serves as relaxation but continually fuels her passion for knowledge and self-growth. She’s also an avid traveler, cherishing each opportunity to explore new cultures, meet diverse peoples, and gather experiences that she believes enhance both her personal life and professional practice.
Chelsea's journey is a testament to her belief in the power of change, resilience in the face of new challenges, and the impact of unwavering dedication to one's passions and principles. Whether in her professional endeavors or personal pursuits, she exemplifies a balance of strength, kindness, and lifelong learning, making her an invaluable asset in social work and to the broader community in Las Vegas.
