Claire Jones is from a small town in Texas, called Graham. She is a current student at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB) where she is classified as a junior and is studying Public Relations and Business. Claire is the daughter of Steve and Kristi Jones. When she’s not diving into work at the Chamber or studying at various coffee shops, you can find her walking her dog, cheering on Crusader football, or working out and coaching at Crossfit Centex. She also enjoys going to the lake, snow skiing, hiking, and photography.
Claire decided to major in Public Relations after a Type One Diabetes diagnosis in 2011. Through her diagnosis she found a love for writing, public speaking, and standing up for what truly matters. After graduation she hopes to find a company or organization for which she is passionate in, and help with social media, event planning, and connections. Long-term Claire would like to open her own non-profit to inspire those with difficulties that they are more than just their title. She fully believes that our labels do not limit us. Claire is excited to be interning with the Temple Chamber of Commerce this semester!
