Clare grew up in Jackson, Mississippi and recently graduated from Sewanee in May 2023 with a degree in Environment and Sustainability. She developed a love for the outdoors by visiting the Smokies with her family at a young age and has strived to channel that love into meaningful work ever since. She has outdoor experience in a variety of settings, such as working as a camp counselor, interning for two land trusts in Tennessee and Maine, and most recently serving an AmeriCorps term in Colorado as a member of a trail crew. As an AmeriCorps member at TSS, Clare is looking forward to diving into place-based education, engaging with the Jackson community and exploring the Tetons. In her free time, you can probably find Clare hiking, running, swimming, biking, knitting, or reading.
