Claire Flowers - Founder and CEO, Claire Flowers, LLC
Claire Flowers is a St. Louis native and entrepreneur. While working in IT, Claire attended a week-long training in New York City that prompted the idea for a women’s shoe that is comfortable, stylish, and most importantly, durable enough to handle the wear and tear a professional woman puts on her footwear. She soon quit her full-time job to make her vision a reality.

Drinks and light appetizers will be provided.
