Clare earned her bachelor’s degree in advertising and public relations with a minor in marketing from Loyola University Chicago.
Clare jumped straight from college into a boutique advertising agency in Chicago where she spent several years balancing account and creative work. She then spent a period of time working as an independent consultant to support a slightly nomadic lifestyle—she tried to hop over the Mason-Dixon line, but bounced off Hotlanta and landed back in the Midwest.
Family and friends—including dogs of either persuasion.
Clare enjoys seasonal spurts of being a winter couch potato or a summer outdoor enthusiast. When the weather permits, she can be found biking or walking along the lakefront, playing beach volleyball, or with her pooch at one of the dog-friendly beaches and parks.
