During her time as a student at University of Detroit Mercy, Claire had the opportunity to study at the Politechnika Warszawska and the Volterra International Residential College. The opportunities both here and there helped shape the designer she is today.

Claire currently works at Quinn Evans, a full service architecture firm, with a mission to craft solutions that connect people to community, and history to future, for impact that endures. She works in the Heritage Conservation Studio, where she works full time on the rehabilitation of Michigan Central Station.
