Chelsea McBride Anders was born into an Air Force family at Andrews, AFB, Maryland, on October 7th, 1985. Chelsea’s family that includes her dad, Eddie McBride, her mom, Debbie McBride, and younger brother, Patrick McBride traveled the world until settling down in Lubbock, TX in 1996. She graduated from Frenship High School in 2003 and Texas A&M University in 2007. She is married to Jason Anders and has two children, Olivia and Jake.
Chelsea is a born again Lubbockite after spending 15 years away. After graduating college, she worked in IT at USAA in San Antonio until she became a stay-at-home-mom. After 7 years in San Antonio and a summer in Omaha, NB, Jason and Chelsea moved their family to Leesburg, VA (outside of Washington DC) . After the birth of their two children, they moved back to Lubbock, TX to be near grandparents and a stronger support network for Olivia who has Cerebral Palsy.
Chelsea enjoys spending time with her family most of all, as long as everyone had a good night’s sleep and she’s had a cup of coffee. She’s a die-hard Aggie (yes, even in Red Raider Country) and life long volunteer holding many leadership positions in the Junior Leagues of San Antonio, Northern Virginia, and Lubbock. She is active in the special needs community and is a sucker for Google researching as a resource and hobby. She’s an extroverted introvert and loves being a social homebody.
