Clara was born in Prague, Czech Republic and grew up in Reno, Nevada after spending her first five years in Skikda, Algeria. Before Campus Rec, Clara worked at a paper security and converting company in Minneapolis, MN as their Marketing and Communications Manager. Prior to that she worked in the Marketing and Public Affairs office for the Reno-Tahoe International Airport and helped implement the communication plan of a $60 million dollar reconstruction project in addition to supporting the RTIA brand. Clara has been with CREC since August of 2010. Her favorite part of the job is being surrounded by passionate colleagues who prioritize the health and wellness of the PSU campus community. She also feels lucky to work in a place that celebrates a healthy lifestyle, in a facility that accommodates a diverse population, in a variety of recreation opportunities. In her free time, Clara enjoys hiking, biking, camping, volunteering, gardening, designing and making art.
