Social Media Manager info@weareuplift.com

Claire was born in 1995 in Belfast but grew up in Larne, Co Antrim. She attended Linn primary school and then attended Larne Grammar school. Claire studied 3 A levels and is currently at college studying animal management. At the age of 3 Claire was a keen Irish dancer up until the age of 14. 

When Claire was about 14 she began to fall over, walk in a clumsy manner causing her to trip. It took several years for her to receive a diagnosis of Generalised Idiopathic fixed functional dystonia. Since then it progressed to Claire's arm and voice. 

Claire came to Uplift shy and with a low self esteem and confidence. Through the classes we have shown Claire that her disability does not hold her back. Claire has been in many of our shows over the last couple of years and her passion, talent and dedication led the Uplift management to ask Claire to come on board with the team. She has great talents with social media, video editing and promotions. Ryan and Amy are glad to have her as part of the Uplift family. 

Claire recently went to Rio in Brazil to represent Great Britain at the Paralympics.
