More About Claire
Soon after graduating from college (early and at the top of her class), Claire accepted a position in New York City at a joint startup between American Express and vente-privée. While there, Claire worked as a brand ambassador and community manager. Shortly after, Claire landed a freelance writing job covering pop culture and social justice for MTV (Act and News, respectively), where she wrote hundreds of articles for a global audience. She spent her years with MTV interviewing and writing about celebrities, CEOs, and activists who dedicated their lives to changing the world.
Claire was later recruited by To Write Love on Her Arms, one of the nation's leading mental health nonprofits, and served as their Editor for three years. During her time at TWLOHA, she worked with more than 125 writers and helped manage the organization's 2.1 million followers across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr. She stills consults for the organization, providing editorial services for seasons 1 and 2 of the To Write Love on Her Arms podcast.
