Claire was born in Manila, Philippines where she grew up in a family of seven. She graduated from Emilio Aguinaldo College with a bachelor of science in physical therapy in 2001. She completed pro bono work as a physical therapist for the “Missionaries of Charity - Mother Teresa”, a home for sick children during the day and in the evenings Claire worked at the exclusive “One Spa” fitness Center in Manila.
A friend introduced her to the world of travel, showing Claire pictures from their experiences around the world. Claire has now worked on ships since 2005. For her, “one of the best things is to meet new people and listen and take part of their stories”. Claire is excited to be on the National Geographic Explorer and has a variety of options to help you tap into your own notion of wellness. Her stretch classes and one-on-one treatment sessions derive from a number of practices including deep tissue therapeutic massage. Wake up and stretch with her in the morning to loosen and invigorate your body and soul; have a private one-on-one session to explore ways to open and balance your body; melt deeply into yourself with a massage tailored specifically for you. Whatever you choose, Claire will help you experience wellness at your own pace.
