What Claire enjoys most about UNC Blue Sky Innovations is the balance between collaboration and creative autonomy she is afforded in sharing its community-oriented emerging technology applications with a broad audience.
As a Public Relations and Marketing Coordinator, Claire crafts visual and written communications that share BSI’s mission and work. She prioritizes an authentic voice, digestible copy, and a novel storytelling approach in weaving together compelling narratives.
A PNW-native, Claire comes to Blue Sky Innovations by way of a MA degree in Media & Communication from UNC’s Hussman School of Journalism and Media. She joined the team full-time in May 2022 after serving as an Innovation Fellow during her grad school tenure. Claire also holds a BA in Environmental Humanities with a minor in Film & Media Studies from Whitman College.
While Claire enjoys North Carolina’s blue skies, she doesn’t yet jibe with the southern humidity. Nonetheless, she often forgoes the AC to play her favorite sport: Ultimate Frisbee (in which she’s a National and World Champion!)
