As the Administrative Director, Clare wrote grants, maintained communication with the groups' collaborative artists, and assisted Megan in the day-to-day runnings of the organization. Clare currently lives in Indianapolis with her darling family (one human, two feline fur balls). When she is not practicing, performing, or administrating, Clare is an avid swimmer and tea drinker.
