Bella has had much experience working and volunteering for a plethora of different nonprofits all around the world throughout her lifetime and has known from a young age that nonprofit work is where her heart lies. When her younger brother, Alexander, had emergency open heart surgery and received a donor heart in the summer of 2017 she found a new cause that she realized had to be addressed more in society and that she cared deeply about, organ donation awareness and screening young hearts to try and prevent others from going through what her brother, Alexander did. Through that realization, her past nonprofit experiences, and with help from family and friends she decided to form Alexander’s Hope.
When Bella is not organizing fundraisers and spreading awareness for Alexander’s Hope, she is doing work for her job, which she loves, as a real estate broker at Windermere’s Chaffey Real Estate Team where she partners with her father, Bob Chaffey as a residential Realtor, specializing in single family homes on the Eastside.
Bella is also very active in her community, she serves on the board of Kirkland’s Rotary Club and is a member of their International Committee. She is also on the board of, and heavily involved with, two other local nonprofits, The Forgotten Children’s Fund and Gloryland Missions International.
Bella is an avid runner, competing in long-distance races all over the world, and a member of Club Northwest’s Running Group. She also loves to hike, camp, travel, read, practice yoga, cook Vegan food, renovate her her home by hand, and spend time with her two rescue pups, Toby and Pookie, and boyfriend, Nikola.
