Clare has worked as a vet for 25 years starting in mixed general practice before doing a residency at the University of Edinburgh where she gained a Masters, and the Diploma in Small Animal Medicine. Clare then moved to the University of Glasgow in 2000. Clare has two children and returned to work part-time after her first maternity leave. She became Director of the Small Animal Hospital when her children were both under 5 and then a Professor a year later. Having taught students and worked in referral practice for over 20 years, Clare recognised the widespread need for support to manage the pressures of combining work and home life and wanted to find tools that could help women and men flourish and enjoy their lives.
Clare first discovered the One of Many™ tools in 2017 and through them discovered a new way of working that delivered a greater sense of achievement and happiness. Keen to share the tools with others, she trained as One of Many™ Certified Women’s Coach. She uses her experiences as a working mum to help others who feel short of time and energy most of the time (STEM). She left the University in 2018 to set up her own veterinary oncology business and in 2019 established Hawk and Dove Coaching.
