Hey everyone! My name's Kelsea! Bear with me while I slowly add to this profile...
Here's me doing some awesome poses as our iFixit mascot, Rosie the Repair Bear...yeah, I got the moves. ( Thanks Corey )
What do I do at iFixit? ¶
I've been with iFixit since November of 2015. I started off as an Education Assistant in the EDU department and now I'm a YouTube Host & Community Outreach Coordinator!
What Hogwarts house do I belong to? ¶
"You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil"
—The Sorting Hat
Hufflepuffs also fair well in Herbology. Which is probably why my plant rehab center is doing so well. I rescue/repair succulents and bring them back to life.
What makes me smile? ¶
Teaching People Stuff ¶
I was born to be a teacher! Prior to working at iFixit I worked in public schools as a teaching assistant and tutor in Math and Physics. I refuse to let the teacher in me die, so I came up with Gadget Guts! Every month we're posting a video explaining how the tech inside cool gadgets work. Teardowns are cool and all, but my hope is that when these things break, you’ll understand enough about HOW your gadgets work and be confident enough to fix ‘em when they break.
I'm a crazy dog lady. My sister and I have two of the most beautiful and loving fur babies. Maggie is a fiery beagle and Pebbles is a deaf Chow Chow-Canaan Dog mix. Our dogs have been through thick and thin with us. We can't imagine life without them.
My mother was an amazing vocal coach and got me involved with theater, music, and dance starting when I was two. It's been a while since I've been on stage, but I take every opportunity to sing and enjoy live music. If you're eaves dropping on my convos in the office you'll probably hear me talking about what concert or music festival I'm going to next.
Because we are sisters! Yes, we know we don't look alike, but we act like conjoined twins. Marina is my rock. I'm so fortunate to live in SLO with Minnie. Adulting is way easier when you have a fierce little sister to keep you in check.
