"I like to coach teenage girls. Soccer was one of my greatest outlets as a teenager; not only is it physical exercise, it's a way to socialize, and learn life skills like leadership, confidence, and hard work."

Chellee grew up playing competitive and ODP soccer in Southern California, and currently plays in the Co-ed and Golden Gate Women's leagues as a keeper. She has been a very popular coach amongst her girls for the few years she has been coaching for the San Francisco Vikings. She also has previous experience coaching clinics for San Francisco Youth Soccer. Currently she coaches 2003-2002 girls, as well as offers keeper trainings.
When not coaching or playing soccer, Chellee works at the Shanti Project, a San Francisco non-profit that offers programming and outreach for individuals with life-threatening or disabiling conditions. A huge part of Shanti's mission, as well as Chellee's is compassion; something Chellee hopes to offer to her players through coaching, on and off the pitch. Soccer is a great way to not only exercise, but to build life-skills, such as teamwork, responsibility, and commitment. It's important to see the player individually, and Chellee hopes that soccer will be an outlet and safe space for these teenage girls to make friends, memories, and grow into themselves. She is thrilled to be apart of the Viking's community of hard-working and passionate coaches, educators, mentors, and families.
Chellee attended San Francisco State Univeristy and focused on her studies while enjoying intermurals. She earned a Bachelors Degree in International Relations with a minor in Global Peace, Human Rights, and Justice Studies, and also has a Bachelor of Science in Recreation with an emphasis in Nopprofit Administration.
