Client advocate.
Human checklist.
Stiltwalking teacher.

Clare can turn chaos into order. She strategizes with clients and creative teams to tackle big projects, ensuring work is delivered on time and on budget. She helps clients realize what they need to reach their goals, in addition to what they already know they want.

It’s a graceful balancing act — routing projects, tracking progress, solving problems, managing deadlines, staying on budget, multitasking in the extreme. She did, after all, once teach stiltwalking as a camp counselor.

Clare joined our team in 2015 with nine years of agency account management experience in advertising and brand development at Peter Mayer Advertising in New Orleans, working with clients in education, telecommunications, hospitality, business-to-business and economic development.

At Zehno, she loves helping schools identify what really makes them unique — a challenge she sees so many of them struggle with. When she worked with clients at University of Iowa’s Tippie College of Business, she helped them develop their brand platform, identifying the key messages that set them apart from their competitors. She enjoyed helping the best business school in Iowa reach its brand’s potential.

During her non-Zehno time, you can usually find Clare walking in the park with her sons, cooking with her husband or attending any of New Orleans’ many festivals.
