Claire began as a seasonal Nantucket resident during her undergraduate years at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, Vermont where she earned her degree in Media Studies, Journalism and Digital Arts. The summer of 2013 included an internship as a reporter for the island’s paper, The Inquirer and Mirror. Following graduation, Claire spent a year teaching English in northern Thailand before beginning a career in content marketing in Boston. From there, her love of the outdoors and passion for the environment took her to California where she served as Communications Manager for NatureBridge. With campuses in five national parks, NatureBridge’s mission is to connect young people to the wonder and science of the natural world to inspire self-discovery and stewardship of the planet.

Claire returned home from the Bay Area this spring and joined the ReMain team in June 2020. As Communications Specialist, Claire is focused on the communications and community engagement for ReMain’s newest initiative, Envision Resilience Nantucket Challenge. Envision Resilience calls on multidisciplinary teams of graduate students from top universities to reimagine Nantucket Harbor and propose innovative, adaptive pathways forward in the face of current and future impacts of sea level rise. The teams will complete their design work during the 2021 spring semester.
