Congratulations to the 2024 ALPS Recipient, Chelsea Lundahl!

Chelsea Lundahl first realized her passion for medicine when she joined the Air Force Reserves in 2010 as an aerospace medical technician. She then earned her BSN, graduating from the University of Colorado in 2016 with a 3.9 GPA while also being voted class clown. After years in the ICU and volunteering to deploy to Afghanistan, she pursued a commission and became a flight nurse. Chelsea now resides in North Carolina where she is a second-year SRNA at Western Carolina University. In her free time (before CRNA school), Chelsea enjoys all things outdoors (hiking, biking, rock climbing, snowboarding) and learning new hobbies (black smithing, archery, welding, sewing).
