Clare cares. A Lot.
You will hear it in her voice when she talks about helping people … and tacos. Before founding Clar-e-ty Nutrition & Wellness, you would often find her having impassioned conversations about gymnastics, life, milking mice (more on this later), nutrition, weightlifting, country music, wellness, and more at her home box, Pale Horse CrossFit, where she is a dedicated and trusted coach.
Before the days of Clar-e-ty and CrossFit, Clare was like many other active people who struggled with balancing nutrition with lifestyle. Not knowing what to eat, when to eat, and how much to eat was the norm. This left her never feeling comfortable in her own skin. Despite her athletic endeavors, Clare didn’t feel like she looked the way she felt. After seeing short-lived success with a nutrition program that dropped her caloric intake to dangerously low levels and then struggling with the unwelcome fluctuations that followed, Clare, a researcher and scientist at heart, decided to take matters into her own hands.
While attending graduate school at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), Clare dedicated her sparse spare time to absorbing any and everything about nutrition, while also training to become a coach at Pale Horse CrossFit.
Clare has a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Elon University and a Masters in Biomedical Sciences from MUSC giving her both the practical experience and the scientific understanding necessary for safe and thorough nutrition and wellness guidance. While attending graduate school at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), Clare dedicated her sparse spare time to absorbing any and everything about nutrition, while also training to become a coach at Pale Horse CrossFit. During these two years, she was immersed in nutrition as both a scientist and an athlete.
Still curious about the milking of mice? Her research included studying the role of a molecular component in Low Milk Supply during lactation/breastfeeding. This initiative laid the foundation for her curiosity and commitment to expectant/postpartum women and the influence of nutrition as they transition into motherhood - physically and mentally.
A Nutrition Consultant certification from NCI and L1 CrossFit Trainer certification round out her impressive list of credentials, along with numerous scientific publications and presentations that all illustrate a dedication and passion toward her subject matter.
Clare cares. And she would love nothing more than to help you optimize your personal growth, performance, and happiness through nutrition and wellness coaching.
