Chelsea Hernandez is a highly dedicated Home-Based Floater, bringing over a decade of enriching experience to her role, serving both the Services to Expectant Families and Early Head Start Home Base Programs at the Neighborhood House Association. Chelsea’s primary focus is on providing educationally stimulating opportunities that foster the growth and development of children and families with a diverse background. She has worked with military children spanning from infants to school-aged, served as an early interventionist helping children meet their Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) goals, and served as a family engagement manager for a non-profit program addressing child abuse and neglect. Her dedication to her work is complemented by her personal experiences as a military spouse to a United States Marine for 10 years and a mother of two sons, all of whom reside in San Diego.
