Claire works at Samasource, a San Francisco-based social enterprise that connects people living in poverty with internet-based work through a proprietary platform. At Samasource, her hats have included leading product, strategy and field expansion, but these days she helps clients connect with Samasource data and content solutions as the head of Sales and Marketing. Her prior gigs have included LiveOps, social enterprise in rural Vietnam, and management consulting with Katzenbach Partners, where she led client teams at large technology companies and helped several non-profits with large-scale operational growth.

Claire holds a BA from Columbia, an MA from the University of London, and an MBA from Stanford.

In her spare time, she knits, plays with Drupal, and sets small fires in her kitchen.
