Her newfound passion for agriculture led her to earn an Associate’s Degree in both agriculture and animal science. Those degrees armed her for her next endeavor, a job with Sparboe Companies.
Chelsea became a production quality control specialist at Sparboe’s Hudson, CO facility in November of 2015. In the beginning, Chelsea had a lot to learn. Working in a layer barn was completely new to her. “The team in Hudson was so amazing,” Chelsea said, thinking back to her first day. “Vince, one of the senior managers, immediately took me under his wing.” Over the last few years, Chelsea has worked in various capacities. Today, she’s the production lead and manages the layer barn team who care for our hens.
Chelsea says the team atmosphere and diversity of the work motivates her to tackle new challenges and keep learning each day. Thanks to Sparboe’s commitment to develop team members, Chelsea just recently finished Egg Quality School and will soon attend a two-day Layer Health Management training course.
“At Sparboe, we’re a family. When I need help, someone’s always there to support me,” Chelsea said. “I truly enjoy what I do.”
