Chelsea Rivers is a working mother who has fought for equality and fairness in respect of many social and environmental conditions, the most important of which has been the plight of the disabled.
The Founder of The Blue Spot – a campaign to bring awareness to the disabled in Cayman by “calling out” those who take advantage and park in the designated handicapped or “blue spots” – Chelsea discovered a very public voice to help express the many frustrations of society’s complacency in the face of disability. In her quest to make a difference in the lives of Cayman’s less fortunate and mobility-challenged, Chelsea has served as chairperson, member and advisor to several boards, committees and associations, including the Cayman Islands Human Rights Commission. She is currently a member of the National Council for Persons with Disabilities, of which the objective is to ensure that persons with disabilities in the Cayman Islands can participate fully in society.
By day, a senior public relations and marketing manager for a large international law firm, headquartered in Grand Cayman, she also runs a very successful tourism-based company, with her husband, and is a published author.
Chelsea manages all of this while being a devoted mother to her three children, one of whom is a differently abled twin.
