A blonde with quiet features, Claire—a former mortgage broker—would have made for an unusual presence in the stolid environment of the bank, as she seems perfectly at home in the hip, eco-friendly salon where she cuts hair. She’s not here for the politics, however: she tells me flat out, “I’m not really a save-the-world person.” Right now, she’s just a hairstylist with an eye on a job with corporate.
What was it like, being a mortgage broker, knowing what you know now?
It was fun. You were putting people into their first homes. That’s a big deal for people.
