With a degree in visual merchandising, Claire enjoys the retail world—before coming to Hanna Andersson, she had experiences at big box retailers. Looking for an employer she had more connection to, Claire found her role at Hanna Andersson in San Diego while her husband was in school. Soon after, her family moved to the Portland area, and an opportunity to manage Hanna Andersson’s corporate visual location came—so Claire jumped at the chance.
As a Store Manager, Claire is both cheerleader and conductor. She handles customer inquiries while also empowering her employees to develop an inclusive team dynamic. Her days in store are always changing, but the most rewarding aspect of her job is creating a comforting environment that customers and employees alike love coming to.
