Dr. Chelsea Amerson has been hard at work in the 12-plus years since she was a student-athlete at Gadsden City High School. She went to Xavier University of Louisiana, the nation’s only historically black Roman Catholic institution of higher education, where she continued her academic and athletic journeys. Chelsea won three consecutive NAIA conference championships as a sprinter during her undergraduate years, and she graduated with her doctor of pharmacy in 2018. She is now employed in Gadsden as Pharmacist in Charge at Quality of Life Health Services, Inc.’s Roberta Watts Medical Center Pharmacy. Not one to shy away from hard work, Chelsea advises GCHS students never to miss an opportunity to learn from anyone. “Work hard and treat everyone with respect. Continue to advance in your profession and stay current with new developments; never be stagnant in learning more about your career.”

If you know a successful Gadsden City alumnus who is thriving somewhere around the world, we would love to include them in the Our Titan Family is Going Places campaign.

They can upload a short video (less than two minutes) and a photo here. The video should be an introduction of themselves, a synopsis of what they do in their career, and the coolest work-related experience they’ve had so far.

Make sure the video is between :30 and 2 minutes. The photo should be of just them with a background that reflects what they are doing in their career. They should be sure to use their name (first and last) as the file name for the photo and the video.
Along with the photo and video, they’ll need to complete the short survey here.
