Claire J. West

Farm Manager
Whistling Squirrel Farm

Claire West joined Montezuma Land Conservancy’s Next Generation Advisory Board in November 2022. She is a small-business owner and helps manage her family’s lavender farm outside of Cortez.

Her professional background is in university development—specifically as a program coordinator and donor relations specialist. She has worked for CSU Pueblo, Tufts Medical School, and Harvard University.

In her spare time, Claire enjoys taking her mini Australian shepherd on hikes and filling her office with art supplies she will probably never use.
