Instructor

Claire comes to McDowell from North Carolina. She has previously worked on farms and in outdoor education in California and Vermont. After studying English and Spanish at UNC, she moved to Birmingham to work with Jones Valley Teaching Farm where she continued to pursue her passion of farming and teaching. Most recently, she has worked as a baker, but found that she much prefers being covered in dirt than flour. She loves strawflowers and hot sauce.
