Claire is from Gray, Georgia, and has been on the mic at PB Ath since January 2020. Growing up, Claire enjoyed playing team sports such as basketball, softball, cross country, and track & field. After undergoing her first knee surgery in 2017, Claire began taking Pure Barre classes as a low-impact and safe method of fitness. Although she had no experience with group fitness classes or the type of movements used throughout a Pure Barre class, she instantly knew Purre Barre was a magical place with inspiring and uplifting clients and teachers. Since then, Claire has had 2 more knee surgeries, and has continued to use Pure Barre (with modifications from helpful and patient teachers) as a safe compliment to her physical therapy routine. Claire’s favorite aspect of teaching classes is choosing the perfect playlist! Outside of Pure Barre, Claire has a passion for working with individuals with disabilities. She attended The University of Georgia, where she obtained bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Special Education. She currently works as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, serving individuals with autism and their families.
