Contact Clara:

Clara is elated to be jumping on the Project Success Facilitator team! Clara is a Wisconsin native. She attended the University of Wisconsin Eau-Claire with a degree in Theatre Arts and Dance. During her time there she enjoyed putting together student-run devised theatre performances, studying, practicing the art of Modern Dance, and playing in a volleyball league with friends. One of her most fulfilling experiences was being invited to the Artists Striving To End Poverty conference at The Juilliard School in New York and meeting other theatre, dance, visual, and music artists. Clara loves playing volleyball, spending time with her dog, Moony, and finding good restaurants around Minneapolis and St. Paul.
