Claire Gibson is a correspondent who lives in Nashville and covers the city for Forbes Travel Guide. Growing up as an Army brat, Gibson moved from state to state at a speed illegal on most major highways. After spending time traveling across mainland China, Gibson earned degrees in Political Science and Asian Studies, and later settled in Nashville, where she began a freelance writing career covering topics of travel, faith, food and education. When she’s not writing, drinking coffee, or running with her Vizsla named Cooper, Gibson is likely out hunting for the world’s best margarita. Her work has been featured in The Christian Science Monitor, The Tennesseean, Darling and Bearings, among others.
