Claire was a first generation college student who came close to dropping out after her first year in college. Thankfully, one day in class a professor mentioned they were a first generation college student and everything seemed more possible after that. Claire has held jobs in a variety of fields, including time spent teaching English in Japan and working with refugees in Detroit, but ultimately can’t think of a better place to work than at a community college, helping students who were in her shoes realize college is possible for them, too.

As a parent to two young kids, her favorite hobby is sleep. And ice cream. (Despite being told frequently that food is not hobby).
