About Me

Claire Colley started at the Grand Rapids Chamber in 2023 as the Events Project Manager. She moved to the Economic Growth department in 2024. Claire has a passion for fostering community. She loves uplifting and supporting local businesses, and doing whatever she can to help them succeed. 

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.
