Chelsea Sacher forms a special bond with clients she works with at the Madison Area YMCA. Most of them live with conditions that are life-changing. Chelsea pours her heart and soul into helping them overcome a negative life-change to make it as positive an experience as possible.
As the health & wellness coordinator, Chelsea coaches cancer survivors in the LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program, conducts Delay the Disease classes to help Parkinson’s disease patients, works with the Multiple Sclerosis population and trains people in the special needs community which includes Down syndrome and autism.
It’s not uncommon for people who have had the good fortune to work with Chelsea to note how grateful they are for her expertise, knowledge, dedication and compassion.
“When I hear the nice words that people say about me, I say to myself—this is right where I need to be,” says Chelsea. “This is part of my life’s mission. It comes from the heart. I understand when I’ve made an impact for someone. That’s a really warm feeling.”
