Claire brings an observer’s keen eye and insight to solve problems for clients.

After her undergrad years, Claire earned a grant to work with the Illinois Network of Charter Schools and worked with the legal team there. Her early successes in that position opened her eyes to the power of the law to make real change happen for people.

In law school, Claire found herself drawn to the research and writing involved in the practice of law. Today, she views every legal challenge for her clients in higher education as a complex puzzle to be solved.

Her interest in the field is lifelong. Growing up as the daughter of an educator gave Claire an inside view into the challenges and triumphs faced by instructors and administrators. She’s excited to work with colleges and universities during a period of rapid transformation.
