Chelsea CoxExecutive Director, Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools
Chelsea Cox grew up in Dubuque, Iowa, attended Dubuque public schools, worked as an educator and most recently as a school counselor in the Dubuque Community School District for close to 20 years. Chelsea will not only be coming back into the schools as the new executive director of the Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools, but she will also be sending her three sons into three different DCSD schools in the fall!
Outside of work, in the spring, summer and fall, you will find her with her husband, watching their boys playing a sport of the season, hiking or kayaking, doing projects around the house, reading in a hammock, laughing around a bonfire with family and friends or traveling to all of the food trucks in the local area. In the winter you will find her cooking, baking, catching up on movies and TV series, spending time indoors with her 2 cats and 2 dogs, and planning trips to warmer places.
And if she doesn’t answer her phone when you call her on the weekends, it’s because she is at a live music concert, as close to the front row as she can get!
Q. What’s the oddest job you’ve had?
A. I was an extra in the film "Take This Job and Shove It"!
