  • Name – Claire Parsons

  • Current city/Hometown
    • I live in Union, but I consider all of Northern Kentucky my home. I was born in Covington, raised in Newport, and I’ve lived in all 3 counties.
  • Why did you want to serve on our board?
    • I grew up using the Campbell County Public Library. With my practice, I know how important library services are to the community. In addition, as a mom to young children I now use the libraries throughout Northern Kentucky for great programs, books and just to play.
  • What is your favorite library memory?
    • I get a new favorite library memory every time I take my daughters to events at the library.
  • What “lesson from mom” do you still live by today?
    • My mom always used to say “If it ain’t fun, don’t do it.” I don’t approve of the grammatical choice, and I can’t say I always get to live up to it, but I try to have fun when I can.
  • If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
    • Greece because I was a philosophy major in college and would love to see the ruins.
  • What’s the most unusual thing in your desk drawer?
    • Steak sauce. It is a memento from a trial I did last year where I used steak sauce as an analogy. Fortunately, we won and the client sent me a bottle of steak sauce as a memento and joke. I will keep it forever.
  • Please share a fun fact that people might be surprised to know about you.
    • I love to sing. I think I’m pretty good, even though my 3-year-old always yells at me to stop.
  • What is your all-time favorite book?
    • I can’t really answer this question. There are so many, and I tend to read everything. I will say that I have had a soft spot in my heart for Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. since high school and have read all of his books.
