I'm a Management Consultant working for PwC living in Hoboken, NJ. My home office is in NYC but I travel around the country to work on at different clients and help optimize their business operations and strategy. When I'm not working I love to swim, hike, bake, and do things that make my heart smile.
I was on the first trip to Nicaragua back in 2013. At the time I was editing for Under30CEO and Matt Wilson asked if I would like to come along as an admin. I said "Of course!" and haven't looked back. I have since been on another trip to Nicaragua (the beautiful country and its people truly stole my heart) and one to Costa Rica. Travel has always been a passion of mine, but U30X has helped to make it a reality. Everyone who comes on these trips has a unique perspective and story to share, and they have helped create once-in-a-lifetime memories and friendships.
Hi! My name is Chelsea Smith and I work in Finance in NYC. I am a Community Manager because I love bringing people together and this is such a great opportunity to have those in the U30X community in NYC to meet each other, share stories, and make new friends.
I took my first trip with U30x this Summer to France. It was my first solo trip and I wouldn't change it for the world. It threw me out of my comfort zone and I met some of the most amazing people. U30x combines bringing like-minded souls together in wonderful destinations with fun and unique activities. I realized that there's more to life than work - there are so many adventures waiting to be had!

I started my journey with the U30X community with a trip to Costa Rica in 2016. Taken aback by the ‘pura vida’ lifestyle and the great sense of community U30X curated on trips and off, I have taken a larger role in the NYC community to foster similar experiences – this time, closer to home. Why? Because collectively we believe our generation needs to explore the world in order to understand it, and the NY area is is a melting pot of culture and history worth venturing with community of likeminded adventure seekers.
