I’m Chelsea Brown!! I was 16 years old, a Sophomore in High School, when my home was affected by sexting, cyberbullying and pornography. It didn't happen with a smart phone because iPhones hadn't even hit the shelves yet. It happened with a Flip Phone and A FAX LINE. My parents came to me lost, confused and asked me to help them protect our family from these dangers. From that day on, I've spent my life becoming the best Cybersecurity Expert for parents I can be. I'm not like the other tech safety experts, social media moms or IT guys out there. I am a Certified Information Security Consultant, certified life and parent coach and constantly learning positive parenting methods to be a better parent. I didn't just help my parents for those 7 years. I've helped many others and I've seen first-hand what mistakes they've made, what they could've have done instead and observed what has really worked in actually protecting kids from the dangers of cyberspace. Now, I'm sharing the things that work with families like yours.
I've worked hard over the past few years making sure you will find actionable step-by-step handouts, guides and outlines, up-to-date tech courses, and anything else you need to enhance your digital parenting arsenal. If you want to see how I use these steps #irl (in real life), follow my Instagram Account or Facebook Page. I even share Kid Connection Messages and tips on teaching Tech Behaviors to your kids. You can find even more resources in my newsletter.
Remember, we're the first generation to raise children fully immersed in a digital world. People are sharing only what works for them, or in clinical studies. Not here. I will give you the complete package on the solid foundation the world should've laid before we handed our kids tech devices.
I am from Las Vegas, Nevada. I have a love/hate relationship with the weather here, but it's still home. I live with my financial expert husband, Daniel, and our beautiful children. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Information Technology Emphasis in Networking And Security from Brigham Young University-Idaho, love unofficially adopting every teenager I meet and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. When I'm not working doing cybersecurity consulting, I run this website, teach classes-to both parents and kids-and help my husband run his business.
The most important thing in the world to both of us is our children. Our favorite family activities are classic and old school fun-movies outside, camping, hiking, lake trips and the original video games of the 80s & 90s. (I had to compromise with my husband somewhere hahaha) When I'm not running this business, I like to read books in our hammock outside, create adventures with my kids, color (Rad and Happy is my favorite and no that's not sponsored or affiliated!!) and dabble in graphic design and eat almost anything covered in chocolate!!
Fun Fact About Me: I could be a midget, but I'm not; legally anyway.
