Meet CDR board member Chelsea Hager

One of the reasons Chelsea Hager joined the Board of Directors for the Center for Dialog & Resolution was due to her background in politics. She appreciated the Center’s efforts to increase civil dialog and resolve conflict peacefully during a time when politics are becoming increasingly more polarized.

Shortly after joining the board, Chelsea took the basic mediation training course and has appreciated the ability to use mediation tools in her advocacy work. Over the four years that she has been a board member, Chelsea has enjoyed seeing the Center gain community recognition and go from “Pierce County’s best kept secret” to a widely known resource that is doing great work like helping landlords and tenants find resolution in light of financial constraints caused by the pandemic.

Chelsea is an advisor at Insight Strategic Partners, a public affairs and government relations firm based in Seattle. Chelsea grew up in Pierce County. She attended Curtis High School and received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington Tacoma, then went on to attend the UW School of Law. Chelsea previously worked in Congressman Derek Kilmer’s Tacoma district office and at Gordon Thomas Honeywell.
