Meet the Admission Team

Chelsea Richards

Assistant Director of Athletics
Admission Office Assistant
Palmer, Texas. I attended The Hockaday School, an independent school in Dallas. My alma mater is also in the SPC athletic conference, so it’s fun for me as a coach when we play at my former school. 
Campus Responsibilities
In my work with the Admission Office, I attend many admission events and interview students applying to the Middle School and Upper School. I am also assistant athletic director and field hockey program head. Previously I was Middle School athletic director and lived on campus as a dorm parent. 
St. Stephen's Is Great Because… 
Everyone is different here. There isn’t a mold for the perfect St. Stephen's student, and all of the opportunities on campus, in our community or abroad allow students (and faculty) to explore their passions. 
My Favorite St. Stephen's Tradition
The week-long 8th-grade trips to Big Bend that I’ve been on have been great. It’s an amazing place to hike with mountains, desert and wildlife. I value the relationships that are strengthened by spending time with students off campus.  
Hobbies and Interests
Sports! I still love to play field hockey, soccer, floorball, kickball and softball! I spend vacations camping with my family or traveling.
