Clare earned her bachelor’s degree in Journalism at the University of Missouri and went on to earn her MBA from Cambridge University. She has a wide variety of experience, having worked in different industries, holding positions from Product Manager to Fundraiser to Senior Manager. She even helped lay the groundwork for a software development academy in Johannesburg focused on women. At Devbridge, Clare will be working on legal and regulatory projects for a client. Her natural curiosity and desire to learn and to excel match up well with Devbridge’s “seek mastery” value. Clare is excited to work on a large product team where she can collaborate, learn, and problem solve to help grow the client’s business.
In her free time, Clare enjoys cooking and baking and is a fan of #GBB (the Great British Bake-off). During the fall, you can find her cheering on her beloved Chicago Bears - though she blames their losses for making Mondays tougher than they should be. In all seasons, you can find her making the most of her Google Home smart speakers - asking for weather info, setting alarms, or queuing up podcasts. Doing so helps her disconnect from the need to check her smartphone and end up getting sucked into social media notifications.
"Optimism is the first cousin of love, it's exactly like love in three ways: it's pushy, it has no real sense of humor, and it turns up when you least expect it."
