Claire started her career editing documentaries for PBS and the Discovery Channel. That didn’t last because The Office called and she won her first Emmy for editing. Then they gave her the chance to direct. She killed it! Other comedies called: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project, Modern Family, Fresh Off the Boat, The Last Man on Earth, Black-ish, The Good PlaceSuburgatory, Speechless, and Son of Zorn. Then Netflix called about GLOW and her first feature film — Set it Up which is about two overworked and underpaid assistants who work for people who treat them like dirt. (Sounds like they’re in advertising.) She jumped into commercials, with campaigns for Jack Daniels/NBA partnership for Arnold Worldwide. But all you really need to know is she grew up in Chicago, likes pizza, and she’s really funny.
