Meet Chelsea Gibson
Chelsea grew up in Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto. She found in those big cities she was just one of the crowd. “In Prince George people actually recognize me in grocery stores and coffee shops,” said Chelsea, " it is an amazing feeling I don’t know if you would get living in large city centres." She loves living in Prince George and appreciates the proximity to nature. “Forest for the World is amazing, vast and in our backyard!” Chelsea enjoys fitness, writing novels, creating art and being outdoors.
An entrepreneurial drive is something Chelsea has always had. She recalls her first business selling dried flowers on cards out of her wagon when she was just six years old. “I’ve always wanted to change peoples lives, run a company, have employees and create,” said Chelsea.
Chelsea opened Wild Rose Wellness in Prince George in 2013 and in 2016, she saw an ad for a 4th Avenue storefront and jumped at the chance to move downtown. Chelsea describes the location as “the purple building beside the shoe repair guy,” an adorable spot that needed a little love and attention. Chelsea is planning on creating a garden and refreshing the old paint to give it a face lift. Downtown store owners that make improvements to their visual exterior help contribute to improvements in their neighbourhoods. “When people care everything around them changes,” said Chelsea, “you can create something that changes the community in such a direct way and you are an integral part of it.”
Chelsea believes downtown is the hub of Prince George and small businesses are the heart of the city. She loves operating a business in downtown Prince George where she is able to see the direct contribution that her services and her spirit has on her clients, her neighbourhood and her city.

Wild Rose Wellness has experienced a growth in enrollment due to satisfied clients and their positive recommendations. “Last year a Reiki class that was hard to get two people in is now selling out at ten participants for two months in a row,” said Chelsea. “People are ready for change, open to learn new things,” explained Chelsea, “there is less judgment and more acceptance than when I moved here six years ago.”
In addition to being a successful business owner, Chelsea will become a published author in 2016. Chelsea is proud of how her childhood dream grew with her into reality and she is thrilled to see Wild Rose Wellness be so successful." This business has given me the confidence to speak and show people what I know and how I know the world can be," said Chelsea, “I am passionate about I do and I am so excited to share that with my community.”
