Chelsi Anderson is passionate about serving individuals with disabilities and their families. During a year of service with AmeriCorps, she felt called to serving the underserved, specifically in special education. She has pursued this path ever since, continuing her education along the way.
Chelsi founded Reveal Consulting to utilize her knowledge and experience to serve people with disabilities and their families. After working as a special education teacher, Chelsi felt called to pursue a Masters in Special Education, and ultimately begin a Ph.D. in autism intervention, which she began in 2016. She wanted to learn more about strategies to best support people with autism and other disabilities. Chelsi has served as a PPCD teacher, a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT), ABA therapist, parent trainer, and volunteer.
