Hi! I'm Claire Shirey, and I'm your Students' Association Director of Wellbeing for the 2017-18 year. I'm your main student representative to the University when it comes to wellbeing and equality matters. I also work on projects in the areas of mental health, sexual health and equality within the Students' Association, and serve as chair of the Union's Wellbeing and Equal Opportunities subcommittees.

I came to St Andrews in September of 2013 from West Palm Beach, Florida. Over my four years as an undergraduate I was lucky to be involved in some of our fantastic student groups working in the areas of support and mental health, including StAnd Together and Nightline, which led me to where I am now. St Andrews is a weird and wonderful bubble, but there can be tough times too, so I'm here to do everything I can to help your student experience be inclusive, supportive, and positive.

I'm here to represent you, so please feel welcome to get in touch with me anytime by sending an email (dowell@st-andrews.ac.uk) or dropping into my office on the first floor of the Union.
