Although a native Midwesterner, Clare moved to Durham after spending 17 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. Durham was love at first sight – literally. After just days in town, she announced her move across country and within months she was a NC resident. The Iron Pour was her first introduction to Liberty Arts and has since taken classes, attended events, and found friends.
Clare is Senior Associate Director of Development for the Energy and Environment Institutes at Stanford University. She originally joined Stanford’s Office of Development in 2005 at Stanford Law School and later served as the Assistant Director of External Relations for the Multidisciplinary Initiatives during The Stanford Challenge. She earned a BA in English from Loras College in Dubuque, IA and an MA in English from Winona State University in Winona, MN.
