Claire Coffey has over two decades of leadership teaching math and coaching rowing to hundreds: high school, collegiate, and adult. Her leadership training began at the United States Naval Academy and continued through Cornell. After graduation she was called to teaching high school students the sport she loved: rowing. (That’s where she met Zach. She was his boss- Still is!) She also spent several years as a math teacher at a New Jersey boarding school and a Northern Virginia college, but life has had a few curve balls for the Coffey family. They have battled cancer several times together. Through every challenge, Zach was by Claire’s side and she continued to motivate him and encourage his career in construction. As a team that has battled cancer seven times together, Claire and Zach understand how important it is to spend time doing what you love and being with whom you love. They welcome the challenges of construction; scrambling to get the bid together, coordinating the complexities of the schedule, identifying the intricacies of the project, motivating the teams in the field, and, ultimately, delivering a project the client loves. Perhaps even more importantly, they love the family around them created by construction. By working together, Intrepid Build creates beautiful spaces that instill pride in all involved.
