One of the newest Nomads, Chelsea McClain, is a true Jill of all trades. Actually, she’d probably make Jack blush with inadequacy.  That’s really the reason she’s here, too.  Jacob put out the call that we wanted somebody to help the Nomads with their own work.  Chelsea had the skills and saw it as a great way to utilize them. She has started at Office Nomads as a sort of all-purpose helper.  Bookkeeping, project management, picking up mail, and many other tasks are right up her alley.

But her skills don’t stop there.  Chelsea spends a few days a week here but fills the rest of her time with three other jobs.  On Mondays you can find her working the front desk at Dockside Co-op, a medical marijuana dispensary in Fremont.  She only has fantastic things to say about working there, especially how professionally run it is.

A serious passion of Chelsea’s is burlesque which she produces and performs here in Seattle.  Right now she’s preparing for the Burlesque Hall of Fame Competition in Las Vegas June 2nd – 5th. It’s a sort of a “burlesque Olympics” into which she was accepted with an act that fuses burlesque and contortion.  She spent her younger years as a dancer, primarily in African and ballet, but was inspired after seeing a burlesque show and has focused on that for the last three years.

When she gets home, work is not completely over.  Chelsea also has a small business for special occasion desserts. She flies under the flag of Radical Cakes and fights to liberate us from the belief that cake from a box is good enough. For years she has been making cakes, cupcakes, and pies for weddings, birthdays and other occasions.  Maybe we can convince her to use the Nomads as cake testers…

So look out for Chelsea.  She’s the one with the bright red hair, often seen strolling into the office wearing a helmet that looks like a watermelon.  She’s eager to help out Nomads in need. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10-3 she’ll be here. You can also contact her at Chelsea@officenomads.com.
