Introducing Board Member: Claire Khouri

The University of Michigan Club of Seattle is so excited to present our 2019-2020 Board to the larger Alumni community here in Seattle. Our volunteer Board Members come from all different backgrounds but all share one thing in common - an unwavering passion for the University of Michigan! We hope that you’ll say hello to any and all of the Board Members that you may see at local events and join the Alumni Association in celebrating our shared experiences at Michigan.

Claire Khouri graduated from Michigan with her B.A. in Political Science in 2003 and her Masters in Public Administration from the Ford School of Public Policy in 2016. She recently moved to Seattle in 2018 and joined the Seattle Alumni Association as a Board Member in 2019. Claire was active in the Residence Halls Association and was the VP of the Association during her undergrad years. Her favorite Michigan memories include studying in the Grad Library with her best friend and nights out with friends at Ashley’s, the Brown Jug and Dominick’s (to name just a few). Claire spent almost a decade and a half working in Michigan politics and policy as a legislative aide in the Michigan Senate and most recently as the Deputy Director of Strategy for Governor Snyder. She is currently the Chief of Staff, Operations at Sound Transit. After doing the commute from Ann Arbor to Lansing on a daily basis for over a decade she now enjoys her 7 minute walking commute from Pioneer Square to the IDS.
