Chelsea received dual undergraduate degrees in psychology and biological sciences from the University of Michigan-Dearborn. In addition to her studies, she worked in the Natural Sciences Department, assisting with advanced virology, immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, and biochemistry teaching and research laboratories. These opportunities provided Chelsea with additional expertise in genome engineering, molecular cloning, and cell culture.
Later, Chelsea earned a Juris Doctor from Wayne State University Law School, where she again supplemented her classroom learning with extracurricular activities. She participated in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Patent Experience Extern Program and Patent Training Academy, gaining valuable experience in the agency’s review and decision-making processes. Chelsea was then paired with a patent examiner in the USPTO’s Technology Center 1600, a unit that oversees various biotech, chemical, and pharmaceutical technologies. Her USPTO work also included presenting to small business owners, inventors, and entrepreneurs at informational events.
Chelsea clerked for the Dobrusin Law Firm while in law school, and we are thrilled to welcome her back as a member of the bar.
