Chelsea was one of five girls chosen to form the group Coconuts Musume. Along with the other members, she flew to Japan and began recording with the group. Her outgoing and lively personality along with her strong vocals made her the leader of Coconuts Musume.

After Coconuts Musume's second single, she decided to go back to Hawaii to finish High School.
After she left, Ayaka took over the role of the leader in Coconuts Musume.
