Chelsea Brecher, MES
Junior Environmental Scientist
Growing up just outside of Guelph, Chelsea developed an interest in the environment at a young age. She spent her time in forests, rivers, and ponds and was curious about everything she saw. This curiosity carried her through to middle school and high school, where she was exposed to environmental sciences in an academic setting. As she learned more about the world around her, her drive to make a career out of environmental sciences grew. When the time came to consider post secondary education, it was an easy choice for her to pursue environmental sciences. In 2020, Chelsea received her Honours Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences from the University of Guelph. She then went on to achieve her Master of Environmental Science from the University of Guelph in 2021.
Chelsea is now proudly an environmental scientist with a diverse background in terrestrial ecosystems and ecotoxicology. She has led a number of research projects at the University of Guelph studying the toxicity of metals in soil to both plants and invertebrates. Her work has contributed to greater understanding of the toxicity and behavior of metals in soil ecosystems. She has also contributed to the development of techniques for the remediation of contaminated soil ecosystems. She is passionate about the preservation of complex ecosystems through conservation and remediation.
