VICTAE arose from Chelsea's belief that you deserve the most current and evidence-based nutrition information to help you become the healthiest and most confident version of yourself. What started as a blog for nutritious, quick, easy, and delicious recipes turned into a nutrition coaching business and a platform to spread scientifically-based health strategies. Because knowledge is power. And VICTAE is putting the power of healthy living back into your own hands.
Chelsea Gloeckner attended Washington and Lee University from 2008 to 2012 as a Religion major and premed student. During her freshman year, she was awarded the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Fellowship, providing her the opportunity to conduct biological research at Washington and Lee as well as one summer of research at a university of her choice. In the summer of 2010, she studied glioblastoma under Doctors Derek Park and Akio Soeda in the Department of Neurological Surgery Laboratory at the University of Virginia. By the end of that summer, she was published as first author in a medical school textbook.
Chelsea graduated Washington and Lee University magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa in 2012. After reflecting on her undergraduate career and witnessing the drastic changes in healthcare, she decided she wanted to be on the preventative side rather than the reactive side of healthcare. After post baccalaureate work in 2013, she was admitted to Georgia State University’s Master’s of Science program in Dietetics. She was awarded a Graduate Teaching Assistantship where she assisted with 3 undergraduate nutrition classes in the spring of 2014.
Chelsea moved with her husband to Wisconsin in late 2014. Currently she is part of Mount Mary University’s Coordinated Program of Dietetics to become a Registered Dietitian and where she is also pursuing her Master’s degree. Chelsea is a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Wisconsin Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
