Chelsea Christiansen
Staff Assistant, Senator Maggie Hassan

Chelsea Christiansen is the Staff Assistant in Senator Maggie Hassan's Manchester office. She currently lives in Manchester but is originally from Pennsylvania and attended Arcadia University where she majored in International Politics. She moved to New Hampshire five years ago to take a position as an AmeriCorps VISTA at the New Hampshire Food Bank. Instead of moving back to PA at the conclusion of her year, she decided to stay and serve another year as the VISTA Leader for Catholic Charities New Hampshire. In addition to her years of AmeriCorps service, Chelsea worked in a nonprofit managing two AmeriCorps programs before making the switch to politics. Chelsea first became interested in politics and government while in college and always wanted to work for the federal government in some capacity. She couldn't pass up the opportunity to serve in a Staff Assistant position when it was offered to her. As the Staff Assistant, Chelsea has enjoyed hearing from Granite Staters and assisting them with their questions and concerns. When she's not working, Chelsea enjoys traveling and is always planning her next adventure. She was lucky enough to do extensive study abroad while in college and has made it a goal to go to all 50 states (currently at 37) and all seven continents (currently at four).
