Chelsea Bodamer has accepted an event coordinator position with Western Washington University and will be departing from her Outreach and Youth Programs Coordinator role with the Partnership for the National Trails System. 

Chelsea received her bachelor’s degree in media and professional communications with a certificate in digital media from the University of Pittsburgh in 2010. In 2014, Chelsea became a Trail Apprentice and later joined the PNTS staff in 2015. 

In her work for the Partnership, Chelsea has actively recruited new staff members and Trail Apprentices, developed a new and innovative communications plan, and planned and executed several national conferences and workshops. Chelsea also envisioned, designed, and implemented monthly informational and training webinars and a trail intern grant program. 

Chelsea’s dedication, growth mindset, and passion for the trails will be greatly missed. The PNTS sincerely thanks Chelsea for her incredible work and wishes her well on her new career endeavors. See you on the trail!
