Raised in Tennessee, Claire has been a resident of Rochester for nine years. She and her husband Rob have a nearly three-year-old daughter, Frankie (Frances, Franks, the Frankster Gangster) and reside in the Kutzky Park neighborhood. Professionally, Claire owns Finery Bridal Chic, which is in downtown Rochester. Helping brides find their perfect gown is a lifelong dream that was realized a year and a half ago when she opened the store. Becoming a mom not only taught Claire an immense amount of patience but also appreciation for all moms out there. She truly believes that as long as you’re trying, you’re doing great. While not parenting, Claire and Rob love being foodies, introducing Frankie to new restaurant experiences whenever possible and cultivating her love for reading, music and dance. Most Friday nights she can be found in front of a crime documentary, with a glass of wine. Cheers!
