As a lover of comedy, activism, and writing—all of which she hopes to combine in her work one day— Claire prioritizes people in all she does. Having grown up near the City of Brotherly Love, she finds connecting with others, whether it be coworkers or clients, to be central to her identity. Claire has been a part of Compass Marketing since her freshman fall and particularly enjoys working in a small team!

She is excited to continue to work with a passionate group of people to come up with innovative strategies for clients.

Gabriella Thomas


Gabbi Thomas is an International Relations major from Philadelphia (by way of India and Ireland). She is the oldest of 3 and almost everything about her makes sense once you find this out. She loves all sorts of outdoor activities and loves to get a little bit of nature when things get tense on campus. She is passionate about building a strong team and creating a great work culture, and has been a part of Compass marketing since her freshman fall.

Valeria Germanova


Valeria was born and raised in the beautiful Varna, Bulgaria. At Penn, she is planning on concentrating in Marketing & Business Analytics. She is in Wharton, but certainly does not identify with the snake-y stereotype, as her personality is quite the opposite - she always enjoys meeting new and inspiring people, taking long walks, spending time in nature, listening to good music, and having deep conversations. Vali has been playing tennis (just for fun!) for more than 10 years and is always down to hit with fellow amateurs. Her Compass Marketing career began during her freshman fall and she is very much looking forward to what the next four years will bring about. She is eager to contribute to a dynamic team and engage in client communication, as well as in marketing great products and services to the community.
