After growing up in Cincinnati and attaining a BFA from the University of Cincinnati’s DDAP (Design, Architecture, Art and Planning) program, I relocated to Colorado in 2008. I was drawn to Fort Collins because of its vibrant culture, natural beauty, and the potential for the city to become a global leader in environmental business and clean energy development. As Director of Sales for Clean Air Lawn Care, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to bridge the gap between business development and environmental protection.
In addition to helping grow Clean Air, I currently serve as the Communications Chair for the US Green Building Council Colorado, Northern Branch. I spend my free time skiing, painting, enjoying the outdoors and the local music scene and meeting the great people of this community.

Chelsea Adamo – Compliance
I moved to Colorado after my husband, Dominick and I decided we couldn’t take another summer in Texas. The mountains called our name and here we are. I love all activities that require you be outdoors, hiking, camping, triathlons and sports requiring a frisbee. Dominick and I have one dog, Barley and she is a fantastic pile of affectionate energy.
Bon Iver, Vampire Weekend and Josh Garrels are usually in my CD player and there is probably some sort of biography or memoir nearby. I am also a certified personal trainer hoping to educate the world about healthier lifestyle choices and the joy of playing outside.
