About Chelsie Hill
Chelsie Hill is a professional dancer, community leader, content creator, and Founder/CEO of Rollettes, a Los Angeles based wheelchair dance team that’s committed to education, disability representation, and female empowerment. She started dancing when she was 3-years-old. At 17 years old, she was involved in a drunk driving accident, sustaining a spinal cord injury that resulted in paralysis from the waist down.
After her injury, Chelsie wanted to connect with other women in chairs and build a strong community of women who support and encourage one another. What started as 7 girls in a small dance studio in Monterey, California has turned into the world's largest network for women with disabilities, Rollettes. Chelsie was also featured on Sundance Channel's award-winning TV show Push Girls.
As an entrepreneur, Chelsie created the very first women and kids empowerment event called the Rollettes Experience with seminars to empower, educate and connect the hundreds of attendees. Chelsie and the Rollettes are creating a global movement of Boundless Babes by helping them become community leaders and live independent lives — mentally, physically, and emotionally.
