Claire has been an active parent with the district’s Family Partnership Office. She currently serves as a board member for the Kent Building Better Futures Board. She sits on the Statewide Head Start State Collaboration/ECEAP Advisory committee, and has been an active member of PTA/PTO at her children’s schools since they entered kindergarten.
