Claire Montanari is a donor stewardship coordinator with Pacific Legal Foundation, where she helps further PLF’s mission of pursuing liberty and equality for every individual.
In college, Claire studied political science and creative writing. She became fascinated with the ideas of Enlightenment era authors such as John Locke, Thomas Paine, Mary Wollstonecraft, Voltaire, and F.A. Hayek. Through them, she became inspired to protect America’s founding values of individual freedom and justice for all.
Claire is passionate about building and maintaining relationships. She believes every person deserves an opportunity to be heard, and that if you dig beneath the superficial level of polarized politics, it is possible to find common ground with anyone—which is critical to defending liberty.
Claire currently lives in West Palm Beach, Florida, where she enjoys spending time at the beach, shopping at local thrift stores, drinking cappuccinos from Cuban restaurants, and reading at the park. However, she is originally from Buffalo, New York, and always makes time to go visit her family and see the leaves change and the snow fall and, of course, cheer on the Buffalo Bills.
