A Cincinnati transplant, Claire moved to Chicago to work at Hoerr Schaudt’s main office and support our Continued Care efforts within the Construction Administration studio. She received her Master of Landscape Architecture from Ohio State University. Claire most enjoys projects that have a distinct personality expressed through design details like niche plantings or unique building materials.
Though one would never guess, Claire wasn’t always the gardener she is today. She credits initially failing at gardening for photography as what put her on the path to becoming a successful gardener and landscape architect. When she’s not in the office or out on site, Claire loves hiking, photography, and traveling.
