Chelsea and a Dog Named LilaChelsea had a sparkle in her eye when she talked about her dog Lila. This golden retriever came into Chelsea's life during a time when there was nothing else good about it; when she was caught in the destructive whirlwind of living with an abuser.
Even before her own abuse, Chelsea grew up in a home not fit for a little girl. She has memories of her mother cooking meth. She grew up and out, going to college for a while at nearby Indiana University majoring in biology.
