Born and raised in Fayetteville, Georgia, Claire first moved to the Midwest in 2012 to attend Hillsdale College in southern Michigan. She graduated in the spring of 2016 with a BA in English before moving to Bellevue. At First City Church, she works as pastoral assistant to take care of administrative tasks and processes. Still an English major at heart, Claire spends her free time reading and writing, as well as playing with her niece and nephew and getting way too excited about T.S. Eliot, rain, and Mexican food.
