Prior to joining AchieveMpls, Clara spent time in Kansas City as a campaign organizer, tracking fundraising metrics on various human rights campaigns for national nonprofit organizations. After relocating to the Twin Cities in 2016, she worked as Development Manager for Urban Roots, a Saint Paul-based nonprofit that connects East Saint Paul high school students with environmental internships.
Clara earned her B.A. in Political Science, French, and International Studies from Luther College. During her time at Luther, Clara had the opportunity to study in France, where she did an internship with a local school, tutoring high school students in English and studying international policy.
With public educators as parents, Clara is a passionate advocate for our public school system, and knows the value of organizations like AchieveMpls.
