Chelsea Foster is not only Sound Precision Entertainment’s newest employee – she also marks a milestone in the company’s history.
Foster is the first female lead DJ to work for SPE, and we couldn’t be more proud. Our company is committed to diversity, and we are excited to hire such a talented, professional woman to join our ranks.
Foster actually came to SPE through a chance meeting with SPE Owner Scott Terranova.
“A few months ago, I met Scott at an event for the American Heart Association,” she said. “Scott was DJing, and I was one of the instructors leading a 30-minute cycling ride to raise money for the organization. Creating hype at the event through my energy, music selection and leadership stood out to Scott.”
Born in Iowa, Foster moved to Ohio at age 2 and grew up in the city of Alliance. She graduated from Ohio University in 2016 with a master’s degree in public administration. Prior to that, she earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology and prelaw. Foster now lives in Shaker Heights and works full time as a human resources generalist.
However, Foster has also fully embraced the term “side hustle.” In addition to her 9-to5 job, she also works in the morning and evenings as a cycling instructor at CycleBar, a fitness coach at Orangetheory Fitness and now SPE.
“I love each and every one my jobs, and not one of them feels like work!” she said.
With SPE, so far her favorite part of the job is being a part of her clients’ most memorable moments.
“I love that I have the opportunity to witness firsthand the joy and love that comes to life on these special days and am able to to contribute to making their big day extra special,” she said.
She loves to pump up a crowd by picking a song that everyone knows and getting out on the dance floor to get the party started.
“Dancing in the middle of the dance floor can be scary, but it can also be where some of the best moments are created,” she said. “Nothing is better than putting your hands in the air and singing super loud with some of your favorite people!”
Foster is no stranger to weddings as she has previously worked in the catering industry, and her older sister recently got married.
“My best advice is to breathe, relax and don’t sweat the small stuff,” she said. “Your wedding day is about you and your partner. The best part of having SPE is we are there to “sweat the small stuff” for you. Trust us. We want the event to be magical, so let us take on that stress for you.”
When Foster isn’t working, she enjoys being active outdoors.
“I am also notorious for the occasional last-minute plans for a night out in The Flats, Ohio City or anywhere with some good music to dance to!” she said.

Honestly, life in general inspires me. I really try to live a life with eyes wide open. I definitely have goals and plans and like structure, but the fact that there is so much to accomplish, try and learn inspires me each and every day.
