Clare has packed a good bit into her working life to make up for an extended period of hanging around universities in Lancashire and Yorkshire. Following a stint at the Lake District National Park Authority in the communications team (where she first met Emma and learned the marketing trade on the job), she set up a retail business in Kendal before going on to start Ten Stories High back in 2007.
Triumphs so far include the very first brochure written by Ten Stories High, organising and promoting a charity lunch hosted by the very lovely Arlene Phillips in Manchester, and meeting a huge variety of interesting people through her work.
Clare lives in Kendal with 3 large boys, 2 large lurchers and 1 large husband.
