Freelance Writer

Claire Kenney began writing for Today’s Catholic as a student while attending Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana. Upon returning to the area years later, she rejoined the publication’s reporting team. Claire has written an assortment of articles for Today’s Catholic and has covered stories about the bishop’s initiatives and his curia. The article “One Family, Three Brides, Six Weeks” that she wrote for the Feb. 12, 2017 edition of Today’s Catholic inspired the recent Wall Street Journal article entitled “Three Sisters, Three Weddings: May, June, July.” In addition, Claire manages a portfolio of clients for whom she develops content for on a variety of topics. Her co-authored case, “Airbnb: Crisis Communication in the Sharing Economy” received recognition from the prestigious Arthur W. Page Society and is available for use worldwide. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in mass communication from Saint Mary’s in 2010 and received a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Notre Dame in 2016.
