Summary

She provided administrative and analytical support for the development of outreach initiatives to better protect archaeological sites across the country. After returning home, Clare interned at Seeds of Peace, a peacebuilding organization. It was in this role that she first learned about and directly experienced the value of InsideNGO membership.

She was born in California, grew up in New Jersey, and has family roots in the Midwest.
