After a 20-year break from the sport and a career as a criminal-defense attorney, Clare returned to the sport of archery in 2021. She works with Source for Mindfulness, L.L.C., to bring mindfulness and meditation---fundamental aspects of her archery practice---to those curious about ways to deepen and invigorate their experience of life.
