1KW Special Guest - Chelsea Williams (@ThatsChelsea)

Chelsea is a nationally recognized plant-based lifestyle media contributor, public health specialist, and blogger, based in Washington, DC. She started ThatsChelsea.com in an effort to help teach others how they can live a healthier lifestyle, as well as become more knowledgeable, health-conscious consumers. Her content ranges from quick health tips to eco and green beauty reviews, to plant-based recipes. She also leads Live Sacred DC, a series of mindful wellness experiences for women in the District.

She has been featured on various media outlets such as TV One, Fox 45 News, ABC 7 News – WJLA, News Channel 8, ESSENCE, PR Newswire, and Beauty Independent. Chelsea was also named by The Daily Record as a 2017 Very Important Professional – Successful by 40 award recipient for her professional accomplishments, community service and commitment to inspiring change.

She holds a Master of Public Health Nutrition (MPH), and a Certified Communicator in Public Health (CCPH) through the National Public Health Information Coalition.

As someone who personally uses shea butter, promotes the use of shea-based products, and non-toxic living, Chelsea wants to help ensure that Women Shea Producers have the resources necessary to earn wages in a safe and healthy environment where they are not exploited.

"I live by The Golden Rule, which is the principle of treating others the way I would wish to be treated. The 1000 Women Project exemplifies this moral guideline."

When asked about the best piece of advice she has been given, Chelsea says it was to "not lose who I am to a man, children, job, or anyone or anything else."

Sometimes as women we get lost in our sacrifices to others. Take care of yourself first.
