Since retiring from a three-decades long career as a Speech-Language Pathologist, Claire has reunited with the muses of creativity and resumed the writing life.

A WFLF/Emerald Coast Writers former board member, Claire conceived the organization's In Focus contest for Flash Memoir and served as a selection editor for the 2019 and 2021 editions of The Emerald Coast Review. She is currently Poetry Editor for the national quarterly magazine, The Pen Woman.
