Life & Hobbies

Nothing is more precious to Dr. Schafer than her friends and family – except maybe puppies and Diet Coke! An avid fan of Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, she spends the majority of her free time knitting, reading, or browsing Reddit for fan theories on some of her favorite TV shows. An animal-lover (R.I.P. Anakin) and Netflix addict, Chelsea’s heart belongs to three things: her family, the Magnificent Seven; her boyfriend of many years, Scott; and teeth.
