Claire discovered pole and aerial arts in late 2018 after impulsively buying a Groupon to Brass Ovaries during her last year at UT. It was love at first flight and she soon became hooked with how expressive and challenging pole can be. Four months later, she placed 2nd in the Dramatic Level 2 category at Pole Sport Organization competition. After graduating from UT, she got Xpert certified and went on to join the instructor staff at Pole Fitness Seattle. Now that Claire is back in Austin, she is happy to be reunited with the vibrant Austin pole and circus community and teach alongside the same Brass Ovaries instructors that initially taught her.

When she is not flying high upside-down on the pole in her new favorite split in 8”-10” stilettos, you can find Claire taking her rescue pup, Tilde, to parks and planning her next road trip (and stopping by at least one local pole studio, of course)!
