FOX24 News Anchor and Producer, Chelsea Helms gets it. She has been working hard and working her way up the ladder from dream to bigger dream, step by step from the start.

On February 28, Helms shared her beliefs in giving your best efforts and giving back by

There, Helms treated students to an enthusiastic reading of Sammy’s Big Dream! The story book follows Sammy Rabbit’s journey and the choices he makes to achieve one of his big dreams, riding the world first outer space roller coaster.
