Associate Director of Development

Chelsea joined TimeLine in 2020. She was previously the Campaign Manager for Steppenwolf Theatre, where she played a pivotal role in the fundraising efforts for their $73 million campaign. She’s thrilled to join this amazing theatre company made up of smart and dedicated theatre arts professionals, especially as TimeLine prepares to transition to its new home in Uptown. A native of Wilmette, she holds her BA degree in Communication and Theatre Arts from Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, Calif.

THE LAST WIFE was the first time I remember coming to TimeLine. I loved seeing a segment of history that I had read before being told with a black woman at the center. AnJi White’s bold portrayal of Katherine Parr stuck with me long after I left the theatre.
