Chelsia Rose Marcius

Reporter/Producer @chelsiamarcius marcius@dnainfo.com

Chelsia Rose Marcius is a general assignment reporter at DNAinfo.

Even at a young age, Chelsia’s daily routine included news — and coffee — as she read The Cleveland Plain Dealer on weekdays with her grandfather, and flipped between “Face the Nation” and “Meet the Press” with him every Sunday morning.

Chelsia, who is fluent in Italian, came to DNAinfo from the New York Times, where she worked as a freelance reporter. Prior to that, she was an intern for the Times' The Local East Village blog and Schoolbook education blog. Before that she worked as an intern for the Record Publishing Co., Fox Chicago News and The Chicago Sun-Times.

Chelsia covered a number stories outside of New York City as a graduate student at New York University’s journalism institute, including the Amish community in Lancaster, Pa., immigration and the Roman Catholic Church in Tucson, Ariz., and urban development in Detroit. She studied at Loyola University Chicago where she double majored in Journalism and International Studies.

Fun Fact: Chelsia has been bitten by a dog, a horse and once came very close to being nipped by a llama.
