Claire recently relocated to Virginia from Western Massachusetts for family reasons. She made her home in Richmond for several years until moving to Charlottesville where she felt more at home. The surrounding mountains and rich cultural life in Charlottesville were reminiscent of her beloved Berkshires in Western Massachusetts.
While in the Berkshires, Claire was a Community Mediator facilitating positive solutions for parties in conflict whether it be in small claims court or between a parent and an at-risk young adult. She and her business partner taught conflict resolution in the local community college and peer mediation in high schools.
Claire is a single mom of two uniquely wonderful daughters who are all grown up and on their own now. Her youngest daughter was born with Down Syndrome with a myriad of heart and other medical issues that are usually associated with the condition. Claire knows the challenges and joys of caregiving personally and professionally. Her love for the elderly led her to a career in Charlottesville which she finds very fulfilling.
Music is Claire’s passion. Playing and singing her own songs bedside to those in Hospice has brought comfort to many in transition from life to death.
