Claire "Dezi" Desmond started playing ultimate frisbee in 2008 as a freshman at the University of California, Berkeley. She fell in love with the colorful Bay Area frisbee community almost immediately and played her first club season with San Francisco Fury in 2011. Throughout her ultimate career, Claire has had the privilege of playing all over the world. She represented the USA in 2012 with Fury at the WUGC in Sakai, Japan - coming home with a silver medal. She won a gold medal in 2013 with the women's national team at the World U-23 Ultimate Championships in Toronto. She traveled to Lecco, Italy with Fury in 2014 for the WUCCs. Claire also joined the mixed national team in 2015 for the World Championships of Beach Ultimate in Dubai.

Claire is a California native who currently lives and works in San Francisco. During the day Claire works in a primary care office assisting patients in the laboratory, at night and on the weekends she laces up her cleats and runs around chasing plastic!
