Chamber of Commerce Director Claudia Starr chats with a reader before she leads a book discussion on "The Ruins of Us," the 2013 One Read program novel, at Well Read Tuesday. Starr was chosen to lead the discussion due to her experience living in Qatar for several years. Photo by Dean Asher.
For Kingdom of Callaway Chamber of Commerce Director Claudia Starr, the novel mirrored several years of her life.
"Often when I read books, things are not quite correct, but in this case it's right on," Starr said. "Things were exactly like my experience."
Starr lived in Qatar, an Arab state bordering Saudi Arabia, for several years starting in 2006 after being named the director of Al Shaqab Stud, an Arabian horse breeding facility that served the Qatari Emir.
Now the executive director of the local chamber of commerce, Starr was in a unique position to offer insight throughout the discussion as part of the Daniel Boone Library System's ongoing program designed to bring the central Missouri community together in discussion over a single novel.

Claudia Starr

Claudia Starr
Claudia Starr has over 40 years equine industry experience in international corporate and not-for-profit leadership.
Starting as a nationally ranked show rider in show jumping, reining, pleasure and trail, to being recognized as one of America's first female Thoroughbred jockeys, Claudia has successfully worn many hats throughout her career.
She is a leading management consultant and horse industry expert; having served as keynote speaker and expert panelist at horse industry conferences both in the US and overseas. Her marketing skills were honed on events like the Kentucky Derby where she served as Director of Community Relations, and successfully designed and implemented strategies in the startup years of the Breeders Cup as its first Director of Public Relations and Marketing. With a masters degree from the University of Louisville, Claudia has been an entrepreneur establishing an equestrian center and guest ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as launching international equine sports marketing products, opening new markets of distribution to the Middle East and SE Asia.
In 2006 she was selected as the Director over His Excellency Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar's, private breeding farm and spent nearly 5 years in the Middle East transitioning the organization to international standards under the operational umbrella of Qatar Foundation, a global higher education initiative with over 30 centers and branch campuses of six American Universities. She oversaw capital improvements for a new multi- million dollar equine centre with state-of-the-art vet clinic and international competition arena in Education City that encompasses 27 acres under air conditioned roof. As the country's first certified corporate compliance and ethics professional, she championed the cause for transparency in all equine endeavors.
More recently she has served as Division Chair at William Woods University where she managed the equine studies program, served on the faculty and developed new curriculum for courses ranging from equine business to horse behavior and training.

Starr, who said she has been part of several businesses and currently is the chair of the equestrian studies division at William Woods University - as an assistant professor she teaches courses in equine business, behavior and training - said she is looking forward to the challenge of helping promote Callaway and further develop its business community.
I'm looking forward to meeting the leaders in the community," Starr said.
