Clare is the eldest of six children and comes from a family of several generations of educators. Clare grew up in Chapel Hill and attended University of North Carolina, where she earned her B.A. During the past six years, she was a nanny/babysitter to ten local families, with children ranging in ages from infant to 14 years. She loves young children’s curiosity, wisdom, and joy….and playing a part in creating situations where  that can flow. Clare delights in cycling; singing in a choral group; walks in nature; theatre and music performances.
