Clarisse has always been fascinated by math and money - an interest that lead her to study accounting. Clarisse is originally from East Africa but has lived in the DMV for the past 14 years, where she received her undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland. Before joining BlueLabs, Clarisse worked for a diverse portfolio of businesses, including government contractors, in public accounting, and with non-profit organizations.
Although she never envisioned herself going back to school, Clarisse recently graduated with a Masters’ degree in Finance from Southern New Hampshire University (which should be the end!). When she is not busy keeping track of other people’s money, you can find Clarisse binge-watching HGTV shows from house buying and flipping to renovating and decorating - she loves them all! Besides working and obsessing about houses, she also enjoys reading and playing board games.
