In 2013, Claire began a mindfulness practice early in her law career and as she was learning to be a new mom to her daughter, Sophie, who was born in 2012. When Claire began the practice, she saw it gradually transform her life for the better by helping her to reduce overthinking, manage stress, and infuse compassion practices into her daily life. Over the new few years, Claire continued to study mindfulness practices and attend retreats. In 2018, Claire began speaking and writing on these topics and she quickly became regarded as a resource for professionals as someone who can explain meditation practices in an approachable and practical way.
