DUCHESS OF LARK LXIII
Clare Goble is a Whitefish native, born and raised by her parents Jim and Mary Ellen Goble, who are also both Whitefish born and bred. She enjoys spending time with her two brothers, Malcolm and Owen Goble, who also still reside here in the Flathead Valley. After graduating from Whitefish High School in 1999, Clare attended college at Montana State University in Bozeman where she received a BS in Education. After graduation and a short term teaching job, Clare made the decision to pursue her career in the restaurant industry; a decision made solely because she was not yet ready to give up the ski bum lifestyle.
Clare paid her way in Bozeman by waiting tables and slinging pizzas at MacKenzie River Pizza Company. That job grew into multiple management roles and eventually to her current position at the Glacier Restaurant Group Corporate office as the Director of Training Development.
Clare enjoys time with her long term boyfriend Ryan Brown. Together they enjoy skiing, swimming and all things the Flathead has to offer. Most importantly they love simply spending time with friends and family.
An active member in the community, Clare serves on the Whitefish Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, and is also a Regional Manager for multiple restaurants in downtown Whitefish.
The Whitefish Winter Carnival has been near and dear to the Goble family for decades. Year after year, the family has welcomed friends into their home on second street for an open house. A tradition that will only become more meaningful now that Clare has been honored with the title of Duchess of Lark.
