Chelsie Cole was born and raised in Northern Michigan, and grew up skiing, participating in gymnastics & softball. Through high school & college, she worked in the hospitality industry, at a local daycare, and spent time as a nanny. She moved to North Carolina 8 years ago wanting to get away from the Michigan winters. She initially managed Sky Mountain Coffee within Lowe’s before being hired as General Manager of Millstone Bakery, where she was able to combine her love of coffee, food, and wine. After having her daughter, Avery, she wanted to step away from hospitality and spend time with family. After seeing Avery’s love for The Children’s Schoolhouse, Chelsie decided to join as Assistant Teacher because she loved the concept of learning through play! In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, live music, spending time outdoors. She looks forward to seeing the Schoolhouse children grow and learn throughout the years.
