Meet our newest Numad, and get her take on nonprofits

Hello, everyone. My name is Chelsea Rosenau and I am the newest Numad. If you would like to learn more about me check out my bio.

I have been with The Numad Group for only a few weeks now, but that doesn’t mean I have been spending my time just glancing at the work being produced by my fellow Numads. Every day I am meeting clients, owning my own projects, and taking leadership. Ted and I are also going to start being a lot more active on our blog. This morning, as the sun shines through the big garage door windows of The Garage, and the weekend is nearly upon us, I’d like to start by sharing just a bit about my experience to date, the past couple of weeks as a Numad, and why I’m excited to be working alongside so many great, important nonprofits.

There is a bigger purpose

I greatly appreciate the fact that every day I will be communicating and supporting organizations that are making a difference in their communities. I value my curiosity and determination to contribute to my own community and share this characteristic with the people I get to work with every day. The fact that our work expands beyond my home-base here in Black Hills is also exciting to me.

Nonprofits are an endless machine

I’m getting a great glimpse into the work of nonprofits already! Nonprofits have one goal and that is to improve or support a specific part of the community. This definitely doesn’t mean their purpose or duties are minimal. They are like any other company—they have many obligations to attend to, that keep the business running. In many situations, there are only a few people making this happen. They not only “wear multiple hats,” but they are busier than most.

They vary immensely

And in almost every aspect. Some of our clients are traditional in how they present themselves, while others are more daring. Neither is better than the other, it just depends on their audience and what kind of message they are trying to support. Each client also has a variation in the amount of people that work for them and their total resources. This overall reflects on what they will be able to do as a company and what we will be able to do for them.


I am so excited and thrilled that I took my first position out of college at The Numad Group. The one thing I have learned with any job experience is the people you work with are what make it enjoyable. My fellow Numads and our clients are all related in how we want to enhance other people’s lives and will do all we can to fulfill that.

At the Numad Group, we pride ourselves in the fact that we can offer an array of services, plug into your immediate and long-term needs, and collaborate in a way that moves communities forward. I’m glad to have the opportunity to not just be a graphic designer, or a writer, or a coder, but rather, to blend all of those skills together and “wear many hats.”
