Clare Donovan at the age of 21, invented and patented the world’s first glow in the dark swim goggles with the help of Dr. Leininger. She then began working for his company PatentDive Inc, a New Orleans software company which helps inventors and patent practitioners with the patent drafting process. In 2018, Clare became aware the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued its tenth millionth patent, but only ten percent of these patent holders were women. In order to bring more diversity into the patenting and innovation process she developed the PatentDive Educator program.
