Chelsea Mandello
Troopster CEO and Founder

Starting the company: Chelsea graduated from Ball State University in 2011 and joined the Navy as a photojournalist. Traveling the world she witnessed the accomplishments and capabilities of the military. It was during an 11-month deployment in 2013 that led to the inspiration of Troopster. After Chelsea received a care package in which the contents had either melted or gone bad, she set out to find a solution. After deployment, Chelsea worked for a year and a half developing the business plan, process and logistics for her company. Risking her long-time plans of becoming an officer, Chelsea halted her OCS packet and launched Thanksgiving Day 2015.
