Office Manager & Finance Assistant
A California stray known to occasionally slip up and say “hella” unironically, Claire was adopted by the Distilled team as their Office Manager and Finance Assistant in November 2018. She has an educational background in business management and hands-on experience in cat-herding for small, family-owned companies ranging from event coordination to bookkeeping and tax preparation to long-term care for people with TBI. At Distilled, she now manages the day-to-day finances of the US offices and makes sure everybody’s got the right creamer for their coffee. She is dreadful at Mario Kart, but hopes to improve soon.
A non-self-proclaimed contrarian, she enjoys being a homebody with her two ungrateful house demons cats, but loves traveling the world every chance she gets. She dyed some of her hair in rainbow colors in protest of her hideous college graduation tassel color (it was beige) and has never stopped. She loves everything to do with food and dancing, is (still) working on a screenplay adaptation of a pirate novel, and will one day be brave enough to perform at karaoke.
