Claire loves baking, swimming, hanging with family and friends, grocery shopping and traveling. She believes her spirit animal is a polar bear. Claire started rowing spring of her freshman year in high school with a nudge from her swim coach and sister. Claire admires Katie Ledecky for working incredibly hard, setting new standards and not being brought down by limits. Claire is a recipient of the Sheldon Award from Deerfield Academy for exceptional enthusiasm for, and talent in, athletics and consistent academic achievement. She also won the Deerfield Cup for attitude in the classroom, sportsmanship on the field and conduct among fellow students that has exemplified the best Deerfield ideal. Claire won the 2017 Spring Academic Athletic All-Ivy. In 2016-2018, she was first-team All Ivy League, and in 2017, she was second-team All-American.
