Student Story

Chelsea Chavira-Verdin

Chelsea Chavira-Verdin, a former MiraCosta College student who now works as a secretary in the counseling office at the Oceanside Campus, certainly has the credentials. As a student, she served as president of the Gay Straight Alliance, now called the Gender Sexuality Alliance, and was instrumental in establishing an endowed LGBTQIA scholarship. For the past year or so she’s volunteered as a certified advocate for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault with the Women’s Resource Center, responding to hospitals when there is a reported sexual assault. During her free time, she and her husband, Jordan, have ventured into the desert with Border Angels, a humanitarian group perhaps best known for strategically leaving behind water bottles accessible to immigrants crossing the U.S./Mexico border. And next fall she hopes to begin her master’s program in marriage and family therapy before launching a new career in working with victims of trauma. READ MORE ABOUT CHELSEA.
