Claire began working at CIVEH over a year ago as a receptionist. Prior to working at CIVEH, she was employed as a manager at an overnight dog care facility and daycare in Vancouver for several years. Claire was raised in Nanaimo, and she is delighted to be back on the island after a 9 year hiatus and to be getting to look after animals at the same time! When she is not working, you can find her exploring the local beaches and hiking trails with her French Bulldog, Arwen. She is also studying at Vancouver Island University with a long term view of becoming an elementary school teacher.
