Chelsea Gobourne, MBA
Professional Student-Athlete Consultant
Originally from Sarasota, FL and a graduate of the Riverview High School International Baccalaureate Program, Chelsea went on to compete in track & field at Florida International University and the University of Central Florida. She earned her Masters in Business Administration from Webber International University.
Having experience of being in the world of both high school and collegiate athletics for a combined 10 years, she noticed a recurring theme of student-athletes going unsigned and missing out on opportunities of educational advancement at the next level. This isn’t attributed to lack of talent but the need to be made aware of recourses and opportunities.

“With regards to college acceptance or getting recruited Coach Chelsea is the best individual to go to. She helped me from beginning to end on applying to schools, taking a shot at grants and provided general money related guidance.
Despite the fact that I never got into my fantasy school I appreciate her helping me layout my choices when it came to deciding on what program I’d join.
I’m currently attending college on a full ride without stressing over financial obligations. Now I see the bigger picture she was attempting to make during my recruiting process.
It doesn’t make any difference what college you go to as long as you are working towards your degree!’’
