Chelsey Fineberg was 8 years old when she was introduced to swimming by Betty Wright, the founder of Abilities United Aquatic Services. Chelsey learned the backstroke, butterfly, freestyle and to dive to the bottom of the pool.

Now an adult, since 2005, she and her family have used Abilities United Respite Services. Chelsey is engaged in many social activities through Respite, but her favorite activity is art class.

A prolific, life-long painter, she has sold many original works of art to corporate executives, government officials, and other art appreciators throughout the Bay Area.
