Chelsea Smith is the Owner and Executive Director of Sandy Swim. Born in Canada, she now jet sets between Vancouver, BC and Los Angeles, CA for business and a good dose of Vitamin C. A digital marketing student, Chelsea was looking for an opportunity to gain more experience in her field. Unable to find the right position, she decided to take matters into her own hands, and create her own opportunity. In true Sandy Swim style, she decided to dive right into it and became the owner and executive director of the company. This position not only provided her with the experience she craved, but also the life she dreamed of.

What are your THREE Favourite Suits and Why?
- Aisha in blue. It is a fun, cute and cheeky bikini. It looks great on every girl and we always get fantastic feedback on girls who purchase the Aisha. It’s also been a hit with influencers too!
- Luscious one-piece in all colors. The back detail reminds me of being on a yacht somewhere in the Mediterranean. It’s stylish and classy. I love it!
- Khloe is a simple and classic bikini. It literally is my go-to bikini for any beach or pool party. It fits well, works with any swimsuit cover up, and is simply effortless in its design. It makes me feel beach ready all year round.
What do you Love About Owning a Global Swimwear Company?
Sandy Swim has not only provided me with a dream business opportunity it has also allowed me to meet incredible people who help me learn and grow. Thanks to Sandy Swim I get to work with a dream team of women who not only utilize their expertise for the Sandy Swim effort, but also offer endless friendship and support.
Name Your Dream Beach Destination and Why?
This is a tough question! It is soooo hard to name just one because I want to go to every beach destination. If I had to pick just one, I would probably pick the Bahamas. I am yet to visit this destination, and their beaches look absolutely breathtaking. I think I would be in heaven!
Describe Your Ideal Day at the Beach.
My ideal day at the beach would be a day of doing absolutely nothing. It would just be a day of safely soaking up the sun (always remember your SPF, sunglasses and a hat ladies!). I would turn my phone off, I would listen to some good beats, and work on my tan (safely), while swimming in a killer Sandy Swim bathing suit.
