President, Chief Executive Officer

Chelsie loves her roots, Texas is home. She always dreamed one day she would own a business and in 2009 she left her day job to co-found Pinky’s Valet. Chelsie’s entrepreneurial spirit, meticulous nature and ability to connect with people from all walks of life have helped her be able to turn Pinky’s Valet into the premiere valet parking service in Dallas. Most local valet companies did not have many female drivers prior to Pinky’s. Her tenacious approach to life is what has allowed her to succeed and encourage those around her to do the same. Her network is constantly growing with clients both big and small. Chelsie believes in creating a very personable and positive environment with her team that allows for her employees to be inspired and love what they do.

From Chelsie: “Pinky’s is a dream come true and has grown to be everything I imagined and some; it is only onward and upward from here. I could not be more proud of this company, culture and team. Pinky’s Valet embodies the true meaning of Teamwork makes the Dream work.”

“A brave leader is someone who says I see you. I hear you. I don’t have all the answers, but I’m going to keep listening and asking questions. Daring leaders work to make sure people can be themselves and feel a sense of belonging.” -Brene Brown
