Claire believes every great strategy begins with a conversation—so she’s honed her listening skills over the years. She sees strategy as a tool for connecting the dots between where clients are today, and where they want to be tomorrow. Her diverse mix of skills from the communications and visual arts worlds has helped clients including CFP Board, Wilson Center and Fairtrade America find the most effective ways of reaching their goals.
Claire joined Interactive Strategies over three years ago from AAA, leading cross-functional teams in public affairs. Prior to that, she found her calling as a branding strategist at Jell Creative in Chicago, untangling complex issues for clients such as the University of Chicago, After School Matters, and the Pritzker Military Museum & Library. She began her career in visual design for the theater and graphic design.
Outside of work, Claire spends her time mastering board games, exploring the DC food scene, and curling up with a good book. No matter what she’s doing, she usually has a cup of hot tea at the ready.
