What was your dream job as a kid? 

I wanted to be Britney Spears and a dolphin trainer. 

On a scale of 1 to 10, how weird are you? 


Finish this sentence: “I am unapologetically…” 

…A lover of sweets. I LOVE all things cookies, cakes, cupcakes, and desserts in general. A delicious sweet treat keeps me going, especially on tough days.

You’re getting on a four-hour flight and can only take one item. What is it? 

My fully charged laptop.

Are you usually early or late?   

If I am not 10 minutes early, I am 10 minutes late!

Hi! I’m Claire. I founded Aunt Flow after getting my period in public without the supplies needed.

Founded in 2016, Aunt Flow is a certified WBENC women-owned company based in Columbus, Ohio. At 18 years old, I dedicated my life to developing a solution to ensure businesses and schools could sustainably provide quality period products, for free, in bathrooms. Our products are made with organic cotton (no weird stuff) and we are constantly working to reduce our environmental impact! For every 10 tampons and pads we sell, we donate 1 to a menstruator in need. I call this people helping people. PERIOD.®
