About

I’m Chelsea Greenwood, a young-ish adult from Puyallup, Washington. I currently live and work in Seattle, where I promote my new book, Leave It All: The Journal of a Maybe Missionary. I am a proud alum of Concordia Christian Academy in Tacoma, Washington, and I hold a degree in world religions (and a minor in Greek and Roman studies!) from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York.

Following my studies, I embarked on the World Race, the subject of my first book and blog. Following that, I had a brief stint as a high school teacher at my alma mater before moving to Seattle to work as a musician. My career path has also involved forays into theatre education, babysitting, and the salted black licorice and pickled herring of a Scandinavian deli. I am currently a barista in a North Ballard coffee shop, just nine blocks from said deli (less herring, more oat milk). I also work at a church in Renton playing piano for choral works and weekly services.

In addition to working the oddest of jobs, I spend my time visiting and writing about places, near and far. Peruse my blog for essays about walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain, fly fishing in the Bahamas, and eavesdropping on bus passengers on my way home from work.

I’m also into painting, pub trivia, reading, sewing, walking long distances across Seattle, Spanish, Hebrew, Ancient Greek, Latin, yoga, hiking, theatre, poorly-made movies, and church.
