Let's Get To Know Each Other.
Chelsea Everett, Chief People Officer
With a natural passion to connect others, unsurprisingly Chelsea co-created CheckMate to live out her childhood dreams and ambition of matchmaking. One eye opening summer in New York, coupled with lengthy subway rides provided her with the opportunity to randomly meet awesome people, and make meaningful connections for others - through language and culture.
Throughout her collegiate career, Chelsea always enjoyed meeting people, as well as introducing friends who she thought had commonalities. It was not until one of Chelsea’s connections actually resulted in an engagement, did she finally realize – she wanted to pursue her passion of personalized matchmaking.
Chelsea plans to one day visit all seven continents of the world, and has had the opportunity to travel across North America, Africa, Asia, South America, and Europe. Her favorite cities being Shanghai, Istanbul, and Rio de Janeiro.
When she is not traveling and meeting people, Chelsea loves to discuss world news and politics, indulge in cultural and savory foods, as well as partake in extreme sports and adventurous activities.
Chelsea’s favorite quote is by the famous Dr. Seuss “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”
Chelsea is a graduate of Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology, Asian Studies minor.
Sabrina Satchell, Chief Knowledge Officer
With keen intuition and a passion for helping others, Sabrina co-created CheckMate with one goal in mind: to bring depth to people's love life.
As a young professional, she understands the challenges of establishing a career while still finding something real and meaningful with an amazing partner. It can be tough. And while the many dating apps make it easier to find and interact with others, there is a serious lack of vetting in the process - that's where Sabrina comes in. With her expertise and knowledge, you can be assured that every person will be carefully hand-selected just for you.
Having an Eritrean mother, an African-American father, and a multi-religious family has provided Sabrina with a unique perspective of life, allowing her to collect an abundance of passport stamps while traveling to various countries, and understanding different cultures, personalities, and people.
When she is not searching for your perfect match, Sabrina is immersing herself in the digital world, attending concerts and music festivals, and keeping up with the latest beauty and fashion trends.
Her favorite quote is by Nora Roberts, “If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.”
Sabrina received a Bachelor's of Science from the University of Maryland, College Park, majoring in Marketing and Information Systems with a minor in Technology Entrepreneurship.
