Community Engagement Manager
Claire Corr is fully in the zone when she’s in the center of her own personal Venn diagram — working on a project where her passions and skills intersect. As Community Engagement Manager for Piper & Gold Public Relations, Claire’s thriving in her sweet spot of networking, building relationships and connections, making sure everyone has what they need to succeed.
At her core, Claire is driven by service, lending her personal and professional time and talents to a range of organizations and causes in mid-Michigan, including a longtime role with the Old Newsboys Association of Greater Lansing.
Claire previously worked in event and member relations for the Michigan Association of Broadcasters and held roles within Sparrow Health Systems and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. She returned to college at 40, earning a multidisciplinary studies degree with honors from Siena Heights University while working full-time, serving on boards, and being an ever-present wife and stepmom.
She grew up in Delta Township and lives in Lansing with her husband, Don, Dunkin the dachshund, and Niblet the cat. When she isn’t on the clock, Claire loves camping with her husband and their friends, getting in nine holes with her beloved golf league, researching enviable mocktail recipes, and searching for the best french fry in town.
