Chelsea Gelbart was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2015 at 24 years old. She is pursuing a Master's in Nursing to become a nurse practitioner to focus on diabetes care. Outside of the classroom, she finds strength and courage through rock climbing, ski mountaineering, and trail running. She is an American Alpine Club climbing grant recipient and works to cultivate leadership and empower more women and girls in the outdoors by sharing her big mountain experiences. As a Dexcom Warrior, Chelsea's vision is to defy the misconception and stereotypes of diabetes by living beyond her disease through adventure.
