Troopster Military Care Packages

Chelsea Mandello is the founder and CEO of Troopster Military Care Packages. A veteran, Chelsea served in the U.S. Navy as a Photojournalist for 7 years, where she travelled more than 13 countries.  Additionally she travelled across 9 different ships reporting the Navy's story. Consequently, it was during a difficult deployment in 2013 that Chelsea recognized the need for a personalized care package solution that led to the launching of Troopster in 2015. Each year, Troopster sells approximately 700 packages throughout the year and delivers 4x that amount in donation boxes that sent out to service members.
