Our office staff - meet Chelsea, our office assistant Meet Chelsea, our new admin assistant!

Play for Real is delighted to welcome Chelsea Rhoades, admin assistant, to our team. She will be working Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 5 pm and Friday 9 am to 3 pm, so this is when you stand the best chance of getting a real person if you call our office!

Chelsea is a Mid-Western girl who grew up around cattle and cornfields for 22 years and then decided to make a change of scenery to a much more tropical view of the beach and palm trees. She was born and raised in Illinois and graduated from college in Missouri. Chelsea has a Bachelors Degree from Culver-Stockton College in Management, Marketing, and Communications, with an emphasis in sports. She has been living in Florida for close to 3 years and cannot get enough of the sunshine and great people.

During her time up north Chelsea spent most of her days on the court. She played collegiate volleyball for 5 years during her time at Culver-Stockton College and also coached a 12-14 year old youth girls team on her own for 3 years. Teamwork and working together plays a huge role in Chelsea’s life and makes her part of who she is today. Team work makes the dream work, and that is something she strongly believes in.

Some of Chelsea’s favorite things to do are to bake and cook. She has a huge sweet tooth! She also enjoys being outside and reading a good book.
