Chelsea McInnis, writer for Climate-ProofHello Climate-Proof community! It’s me, Chelsea. I am super excited that David has asked me to join the Climate-Proof team as a contributing writer.

A recent migrant to California, I am now at the center of climate vulnerability – I’ve been through extreme drought, wildfires, heavy rains, detrimental early Tahoe snowmelt, and flooding. Living in America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital, and on the banks of the Sacramento River, I have witnessed the costs that extreme weather can impose on my community. I plan to bring Climate-Proof readers the resilience initiatives I am researching.

I graduated from the University of South Florida with a B.A. in history and began my career working for organizations such as the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the National Museum of American Illustration. Years ago, I started my own history blog which led to further opportunities to contribute to a slew of websites as a freelance writer and editor.

Although working from home is ideal (pajamas 24/7), I always try to find an enjoyable part-time gig that get’s me up and out of the house. Which is how I met David, in Rhode Island, while he was in the throes of composing his book Climate-Proof Your Personal Finances as none other than…his barista. Now I’m on the other side of the counter (and country) and couldn’t be more thrilled to contribute to Climate-Proof.
