Chelsey Bermudez

Campus Intern


Andrew and Meghan grew up in the great state of North Carolina. They met while serving as camp counselors off of Lake Wylie, SC. They both came to know the Lord while they were in college. They both have a love for the college campus and for college students. Andrew loves playing and watching all kinds of sports and Meghan loves to cook baked goods (she once worked as a baker) and read. We have a son named Knox (born March 2015) and he loves to chase our dog around the house and to dance to all kinds of music. We are so excited to be at the University of South Florida and would love nothing more than to get to meet you and spend some time getting to know you. 


Chelsey was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI and is a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a degree in Occupational Studies, a minor in Psychology, and a certificate in Therapeutic Recreation. Chelsey has been involved with RUF for the past 5 years and has enjoyed serving on both the leadership and worship teams. She enjoys playing and making music, exploring/trying new things, and hanging out with friends.
