Victoria Chappelear (she/her)

Victoria joined the Dream Team in March 2022 as a Clinical Intern. She grew up as a Military child; however, currently calls Colorado Springs her home. She has a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Drexel University and is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from the University of Denver. Additionally, Victoria is a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer of Fiji.

Victoria is working hard to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and is passionate about encouraging self-care to contribute to the overall well-being of the mind, body, and soul. Victoria loves the opportunity she is getting at Colorado “I Have A Dream” Foundation to work with youth, getting to know their unique personalities, and is hopeful that she will make a positive impact on their development.

When Victoria is not encouraging the emotional development of her clients, she likes to do creative activities – such as drawing, baking, and embroidery. Additionally, she enjoys yoga and has recently learned the art of hoop dancing!
