10 Minutes with Claire Lemaster

Welcome to a series of blogs getting to know the team members here at Heckenkemper! If you missed out on meeting Stephanie last week, go take a look. This week we are focusing on Claire Lemaster! Here we go:

Where are you from?

Northwest Arkansas

Where did you go to school?

Oklahoma City University

How long have you been at Heckenkemper?

3 years (I’ve had a baby since I started here and she’s almost TWO now!)

What is your favorite movie?

National Lampoon’s European Vacation

Where can you most likely be found on the weekends?

Back patio

Where is your favorite place you have ever travelled? Why?

Ireland…the countryside is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen anywhere in the world. It’s calm, quiet…the people are friendly, the towns are picturesque…it is just lovely.

If you could have dinner with any famous person, past or present, who would it be and why? 

I was trying to think of a really profound choice but I’ll pick Jimmy Fallon b/c he is hysterical! I love that he laughs in the middle of anything. He just seems to have a true joy in being a big goofball and that sounds like a really fun dinner!

What is your favorite T.V. show?

The Great British Baking Show! I’m not into all the Food Network shows like Chopped or Top Chef (I’m sure they are great) but GBBS just sucks me in every time. I love how friendly and light-hearted it is…plus, food!

What is your most embarrassing moment?

3rd grade school play… I had to sing a solo. It was the worst.

What food can you not resist?

Cheese popcorn. I just discovered Boomchickapop Caramel and Cheddar…I’m in major trouble!

What do you do to unwind?

Glass of wine on the back patio on a nice evening sounds pretty perfect!

What is your favorite article of clothing?

A good pair of jeans

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Inconsiderate people or behavior! It takes two seconds to stop and think how things might affect others around you 

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Loyal, Kind, Determined

Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

Take your time in figuring things out in life, love, career. There is no race to the finish; it’s about the journey. (that’s from my dad, he’s pretty great!)
