I currently reside in Quito, Ecuador, where I have been living, working, and enjoying the beautiful Andes Mountains for the past four and a half years.  I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri, and grew up there before attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, majoring in International Studies and Spanish.

I work for the largest construction company in Ecuador, managing international relations. I love running and being active, and I enjoy the year-round springtime weather we have on the equator at 10,000 feet. I am a self-proclaimed wine-lover and am passionate about travel and world cultures.

Claire was a Cross Continent MBA student prior to the program's merger with the Global Executive MBA program.
