Claire Oliver Joins the GP2C Board of Directors

Claire Oliver, new member GP2C Board of Directors
Girl Power 2 Cure is excited to announce the addition of a new member to our Board of Directors.
Claire Oliver, an elementary school administrator, has over 17 years of experience in education and a strong passion for non-profit work. Claire shares that learning about Rett Syndrome and all that GP2C is working towards accomplishing is what inspired her to get involved. "I have a deep passion for helping children receive the education they need and deserve, and love the work Girl Power 2 Cure is doing, especially with Rett University."

Claire adds that seeing how much Rett girls need advocates to ensure they receive quality education is what motivated her. She says, "I’ve seen firsthand just how hard these girls work. When given the right education plan and environment, they have so much to say. I want to be a part of changing the way the world sees these beautiful girls and all they CAN DO!”

Additionally, Claire is passionate about endurance sports - something she has been involved in extensively for the past 14 years. She is an avid runner, as well as a triathlon and marathon coach since 2003. She has coached over 1,000 runners to the finish line and holds an RRCA (Road Runners Club of America) certification, USAT (USA Triathlon) coaching certification as well as certification by Dave Scott as a triathlon coach.

Claire lives in Irving, TX with her fur family and in her spare time enjoys running, sewing and volunteering her time for worthwhile causes.

We look forward to working with Claire and know her educational and endurance training background will be an incredible asset to two of our biggest programs: Rett University and Team GP2C.
