Devoutly Catholic, Clark is outspoken about her faith, and prays and attends church often.[1]

She said about her education at Dowling Catholic High School in West Des Moines, Iowa: "We get to live our faith every day. Dowling starts every day with prayer and ends every day with prayer. This is a big reason why Dowling has such a special culture and is such a special place to go to school."[1]

Television audience records

Clark has shattered television audience records with her Iowa team's games during March Madness in 2024.
