Adoption STAR

Claire Cappellino, BA

Compliance Associate

Working as Adoption STAR’s Compliance Associate, Claire’s main responsibilities include processing client clearances, references, managing the front desk, and ensuring client files are in compliance. As the friendly voice and face clients first hear and speak with when connecting to Adoption STAR, Claire greatly enjoys being a regular part of ones journey.


She graduated from the University at Buffalo with a degree in Anthropology specializing in cultural anthropology. The majority of her work was centered around Native American studies. Being part Native herself, she is very passionate about aiding all minorities and giving back to the community.

In her free time Claire enjoys painting, singing, reading, and jamming on the ukulele. She also volunteers at the SPCA on the weekends.
