President - Chelsea Davenport
Chelsea started working several years ago building a program to help first responders and their families. She created Peak 1 Wellness to provide better options and support for preventative solutions to the many issues they face throughout their careers. Prior to starting Peak 1, she worked in the medical field for 8 years, 4 of those years being in the lab industry. Here is where her knowledge and experience was gained to help promote change in the first responder industry. She was compelled to start this foundation after witnessing the different barriers that keep first responders from getting the help they need. Having family members that are first responders helps to fuel her passion to make a difference in the lives of those that risk their lives to protect us.
