Chelsea and I are good friends, and we worked together during her transition from the USS Ronald Reagan out of San Diego to Systems Planning and Analysis in Northern, VA a few years ago.

In this episode, we catch up about what she’s been working on recently, learn some of her tips for navigating the path to grad school after starting full time work, and hear her take on working for the government in a position where she directly influences critical programs from the top down.

Like our last guest, Chelsea was also a nuclear-trained Surface Warfare Officer during her time in the Navy, but unlike our last guest her career has taken her in a more technical, policy related direction. Hopefully this 2 part series shows how different the trajectories can be from the same job title in the military.
