Chelsea Burkett

Fourth Economy

Chair

Chelsea is the Director of Sustainable Communities at Fourth Economy Consulting. Chelsea works with public, private and nonprofit clients to develop sustainable approaches to economic development. Chelsea’s background is in urban planning and community development. Her work with nonprofits to ensure infrastructure development provided benefits to local residents and work with local governments to promote a community input process for quality development, public art, civic design and historic preservation has made her a natural fit for this board. Specifically, she was inspired to join the board because Grounded’s work at the intersection of community development and the green economy matches her own passions.

In addition to her Grounded Strategies Board and SCC membership, she is a member of the American Planning Association and serves on the Wilkinsburg Public Art and Civic Design Committee. She also likes craft beer, gardening, cooking, and canning. In fact, she recently co-founded the Pittsburgh Canning Exchange, a resource for Pittsburgh-based canners both new and old.
