Claire has been a matchmaker with boutique company Friend of a Friend Matchmaking since mid-2016. She started out working specifically with the LGBTQ+  community in Greater Toronto Area and has now expanded to also serve both the straight and LGBTQ+ populations in Hamilton, a flourishing city about an hour outside of Toronto.

Her work is informed by an intersectional approach to matchmaking, leaving assumptions aside, and moving beyond the confines favoured by apps and online dating. Her meetings are open-ended, client-centred opportunities for questioning and self-discovery, and she serves as a sounding board for questions not only about matchmaking but dating and romance in general.
