I am an established writer, editor, researcher and wannabe policy wonk.

Panel 1

About Claire



I graduated from the University of King’s College with a Bachelor in Journalism (honours) and a double honour in Political Science from Dalhousie University. I did so because I truly believe journalism’s main impetus should be to increase the level of dialogue in citizens, not customers.

I’ve worked as a parliamentary reporter, covering national and digital security while at iPolitics.ca, for two and a half years. I’ve also had bylines in the National Post, the Telegraph Journal, the Chronicle Herald, Vice and more.

I am currently pursuing employment as a researcher or analyst in Ottawa, with a focus on policy. I’m also interested in contract or volunteer work along the same vein.
