Claire Veen, Assistant State Commissioner
Claire works in Education, currently managing a BYOD iPad program in the years 4 to 6 classes at a busy primary school. When not solving technical glitches, she supports individual students and works with small groups to enhance their classroom experiences. Claire is always keen to challenge herself and try new things – whether in work, life or her Guiding career.
Claire has volunteered with Girl Guides WA for almost 20 years and has held many different roles during this time. She continues to volunteer at a local Guide Unit as a Leader, and enjoys watching the girls grow into confident young women. She loves being out of doors and her favourite memories include camping, being in a canoe, sitting around a campfire and spending time with other Girl Guides, both youth and adults. She values the self-development, friendships made and the ongoing opportunities that being a member of Girl Guides WA offers.
Claire is excited about her role as Assistant State Commissioner and will continue to support those around her in their Guiding journey. Claire, who held the same role for the previous State Commissioner, is confident that Girl Guides WA will continue to offer a unique, safe place for many young girls and women. Claire is committed to challenging herself and the organisation, ensuring that Guiding remains relevant for the foreseeable future.
