Claire grew up in the Twin Cities and currently resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota on the ancestral and contemporary lands of the Dakota and Anishinaabe. She went to college at the University of Minnesota where she obtained a degree in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management. Claire sees the climate crisis as one of the greatest issues facing humans today and as an issue deeply entwined with environmental racism. She feels very fortunate to be contributing to the creation of just climate solutions in her role as Programs Coordinator, where she utilizes her strategic planning and organizing skills to support Climate Generation’s education and youth programs staff in their impactful work. In her free time, Claire enjoys swing dancing, attempting gymnastics, reading, eating ice cream, hanging out in nature, and petting dogs.
