About Claire

A Principal at K&A, Claire has spent the majority of her professional career working with corporate, healthcare, educational, affordable, and senior housing clients. As Director of the firm’s Interior Design studio, Claire is responsible for monitoring and controlling project resources to ensure that schedule and budget are maintained as well as managing every aspect of the interior design phases of a job: from finish selections, interior finish documentations, furniture and artwork, to signage, drapery and accessories, and relocation services.


Claire has received many commendations for her ability to communicate with clients in their own language as well as educate them on specific materials and maintainability during the design process to aid in educated decision-making in the future. The result is the creation of dynamic environments and exceptional, cost-effective designs that provide comfort and inspiration to those who occupy, visit, maintain, and manage the space.
