Chelsea Cook is from Edmonton Alberta and this is her second year with the Augustana Vikings X-country ski team. She is enrolled in both a BA and BS program, with a double major in Phys Ed Outdoor Ed and Environmental Science. While currently unsure where her studies will lead her, she hopes to work outdoors, perhaps as an outdoor educator. As a returning player, Cook hopes to improve her skiing technique and strength, and compete at least twice with the team.
Cook was on the Dean’s List last year and is an executive on the Augustana Outdoors Club.
When Cook is not skiing, you can find her in the kitchen baking unreasonably copious quantities of cookies and loaves for absolutely no reason other than to procrastinate and make her friends happy. Her favourite book is The Little Prince by Antonie de Saint-Exupéry, her favourite movie is About Time, and her favourite foods are eggs and grapes (not together).
One of her favourite inspirational quotes is “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength” Philippians 4:13
Cook is lucky to be supported by her fellow roommates: Kate, Sarah and Eliana, and also by a cardboard Obama who is always in the living room to offer a smile of encouragement.
