Claire received her B.S. in neurobiology, physiology, and behavior from the University of California, Davis.

Instead, she spent her time in college studying science, writing for her school newspaper, The California Aggie, and working with military children in Japan, Germany, and Hawaii for Camp Adventure Youth Services.
