Clare is an Associate Principal in Navigator’s Toronto office.

Clare previously served as the Director of Strategic Communications and Principal Writer for the Premier of Ontario. During the COVID-19 outbreak, she supported the Premier through over 200 daily press conferences on the government’s response to the pandemic to ensure Ontarians stayed safe and informed. She also worked closely with two of Ontario’s Finance Ministers to script the government’s communications through provincial budgets and fall economic statements during her time in public service.

Along with being a professional wordsmith, Clare brings extensive experience in strategic communications, crisis response, and public affairs campaigns to Navigator’s clients. She continues to play an active role in the political process at the provincial and federal levels.
