Claire Miccio

Claire is an Associate with experience helping teams in utilities, non-profit, libraries and local government perform to their highest potential. Claire specializes in strategy development, decision analysis and program evaluation. Her interests in public policy and urban infrastructure have led her to enjoy the challenges of problem solving with diverse stakeholders in regulated environments. Prior to joining BERK, Claire served as Strategic Planning Program Manager for Tacoma Water, Graduate Funding Information Manager at UW Libraries and a Research Assistant for WSDOT Environmental Programs. She holds a Master of Public Administration and a Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Washington and a BA in English from Smith College. Claire also attended Middlebury College’s Language School, where she studied Italian language and literature.


Claire spent her childhood in Colorado and Indiana, and her teenage years in Pennsylvania. After college, she lived in Boston, worked a variety of odd jobs and traveled. Claire accepted a fellowship to attend UW, and moved to Seattle, sight unseen. Clearly she grew fond of the area, because she decided to stay and has since married a native Seattleite. Claire delights in many things, especially food, wine, long-distance running and literary fiction.
