Claudette Van Gordon: WC office managerJanuary 18th, 2006 Malina
You know the saying that behind every great man (or in this case, company,) there’s a great woman? Exhibit A: Claudette, the Grande Dame of the Walnut Creek office. Much like Duct Tape, she can pretty much do it all. From booking trips to year-end reports and scheduling, Claudette keeps it all together; we would be lost without her.
After getting her B.S in Marine Biology, Claudette started working for ARTA river trips. She moved over to AO in 1988 and even though we don’t have many otters or starfish to count she puts up with us as long as she gets to raft the Tuolumne every year. She’s still looking for a “real job.”
