Founding Board Member
Claire is the Founding Member and Chairman of the Maryland Chapter. She came to know about the US Green Chamber while creating her own green business. She has a passion for efforts in Sustainability, and belongs to several local networking groups which has given her the opportunity to learn about the amazing businesses in her home state.
Claire was born in Annapolis, raised in Severna Park and completed a 25 year career as an aerospace engineer for the Navy. After some time off, she started to pursue a deep interest in creating alternative products that would reduce the trash and waste generated daily in our society. With a theme of Products and Practices for a Prettier Planet, her first items are becoming available and can be found at ProductsforaPrettierPlanet.com and TakeMeOuts.com.
The Maryland Chapter is looking for potential board members who are passionate about conservation and want to support Maryland businesses that are making an impact on the state’s ecology, economy and culture. If you would like to support this chapter, please contact Claire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
