About Me

Claire Colley started at the Grand Rapids Chamber in 2023 as the Events Project Manager. Her role entails overseeing the planning process for many of the Chamber’s 160+ programs and events. Claire has a passion for experiencing and creating joyful, warm, and inviting spaces where people can be their authentic selves and form positive connections.

Claire was born and raised in Flint, Michigan, and moved to Grand Rapids to attend Grand Valley State University where she graduated with a degree in Hospitality & Tourism Management in 2020. After graduating, she decided to call Grand Rapids home. Her favorite activities include reading on the couch with her cat Poppy, going to any and all concerts, spending time with family and friends, or traveling and exploring new places with her husband Brennen.
