Chelsea Bear

Chelsea was born and raised in South Florida. When she was eight months old, her mom began to realize she wasn’t sitting up like the other babies in her mommy and me class, which led to years of doctor visits, MRI’s, cat scans, X-Rays and more. At the age of three, Chelsea was officially diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.

After graduating high school in 2011, Chelsea attended Florida Gulf Coast University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in communication and public relations. She led a thriving career in public relations for 7+ years, and in late 2021 she took the leap to pursue content creation and disability advocacy full-time.

Today, Chelsea uses social media to share her first-hand story of living with Cerebral Palsy. Her Instagram platform grew from 1K to 315K+ followers organically in just two years. Her content is comprised of educational, fun and lighthearted posts that strive to create acceptance and awareness for people with disabilities. She’s certainly no stranger to adventure and aims to live her life to the fullest. Some of her favorite pastimes include traveling, learning adaptive exercises, writing, going on walks, drinking red wine, spending time with family and friends, and much more! To-date, more than 40 of Chelsea’s Instagram Reels and TikToks have garnered more than 1 million views with her most viral post reaching more than 55 million people.

Her brand is all about being a positive light in the world. With genuine and authentic content that creates a comfortable space for productive conversations, her audience and the community she’s cultivated is extremely engaged.
