Claire Schmitt

2019 Notley Fellow

Claire is passionate about making a difference, and seeks to use the knowledge and resources she's accumulated thus far to amplify others. A Northern California native, she moved south to attend UCLA and earn her degree in Economics. Claire lived in LA for several years following graduation, starting her career in various Accounting roles until moving to Austin in 2013, where she's been missing the Southern California winters (but not much else) ever since. Shortly thereafter, Claire joined BuildASign, where her passion for data and an "always be learning" approach to her career led her to her current role as Director of Digital Marketing. Claire started and continues to run the BuildASign Women's Group, which promotes personal and professional development among its members. In her spare time, she coaches girls' soccer, participates in several Girls Empowerment Network programs, travels, and enjoys the outdoors.
