Originally from Taos, Claire grew up with an interest in the natural environment which led her to the field of environmental studies and water management. Most of her experience is related to water resources, but she found community planning through Taos MainStreet where she worked with the downtown to foster economic activity and community building. Her interest in people and data led her to move to Albuquerque to pursue a career in planning. She is currently working on her Masters in Community and Regional Planning at UNM, while gaining experience at Groundwork Studio.
Outside of work Claire likes to hang out with her animals and friends, especially in the mountains. She also loves chai, apples and cooking.
