President, SVMP Alumni Association



Chelsea Seabron is the President of the SVMP Alumni Association and a senior consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton.  As a graduate of New York University, Chelsea’s experience in SVMP served as motivation to get involved.  She explains, “ I got involved with the SVMP AA right after I completed SVMP and have had the opportunity to work under the fantastic leadership of both Victor Collins and Bridgette Adams, first as the Director of Marketing and Communications and then as the Director of Events.” Chelsea believes both positions have helped develop  her leadership skills and remain connected to a cause that she cares deeply about.


This year Chelsea is driving the SVMP Alumni Association to raise brand awareness, help alumni connect better with one another, and lay the foundation for strategic and sustainable growth.  She shares with us, “ I’m blessed to be supported by such a dynamic team of intelligent, hard-working, and innovative leaders.   We have made significant strides in each area and have the right team in place to continue moving the SVMP AA train forward.”
