Claire is an education reporter at KUT, covering schools in the Austin, Texas area.
She's written for the NPR Ed and NPR Politics blogs and contributed to national NPR projects like the plunge into school funding. She's worked at a newscaster and producer for two local talk shows. She was a 2016 fellow for the Institute for Justice in Journalism, where she produced stories about Indiana's English learners in rural areas. She won an Edward R. Murrow award for that series.
If you were to get a beer with her, she'd tell you about how she cries the first fifteen minutes of a Bruce Springsteen show because of overwhelming happiness, her biggest fear is getting clotheslined by a car door while riding her bike and how she's currently enjoying a year's supply of La Croix sparkling water.
