Chelsea Lee

  • LinkedIn

Treasurer

Hey, I'm Chelsea.  Welcome to my bio.  I am half filipino / half chinese and felt out of touch with my Filipino culture and other young professionals while being thrown into adulting.  In 2014, I found the Filipino Jaycees which is great because I could learn about the culture while working with other young professionals to give back to the community.  I was previously on board as the Membership Vice President and currently am Treasurer. 

 

I currently work as a Realtor with Better Homes and Gardens.  I've been in real estate for almost 5 years working on a team with my brother Colin.  We are recognized as Top 3% of all teams Nationwide with Better Homes and Gardens.  When I'm not helping our clients, I enjoy spending time with my family/friends (if I don't mention it, what kind of person am I?), nintendo switch, dogs and working my puff into tuff. 

 

If you're interested in joining FJCH, dogs, video games, real estate, food, fitness, anything really, come chat with me! I'm not single but I'm always ready to mingle.
