Director of Operations
As Director of Operations, Kara Kobunski is responsible for the behind the scenes development that allows CCC to successfully and efficiently cater to our clients' needs. She plays a critical role in the management of systems, communications, organization, and company development. As Bart's partner, she is also a co-facilitator, producer, and host of our virtual workshops, for which she designs the curriculum and materials. Kara is willing to put in any amount of time, research, and energy to guarantee her best efforts. She is extremely talented in bringing people and resources together to accomplish significant goals.
However, administration and systemic skills are not her only strong suit. Kara is also very people-oriented, with a vigorous background in bringing about positive changes across the world and a passion for ensuring that our work reflects that. Kara is known for her organization, positivity, compassion, and supportive nature, which she embodies in and out of the workplace.
As the Executive Assistant, Saaleha Shamsi is largely responsible for communicating with clients, managing internal systems, and maintaining the organization of CCC. She also develops and utilizes the our virtual, state-of-the-art tools, which are used frequently in our collaborations, many of which she takes detailed minutes in. She is currently completing her B.S. in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and is pursuing a career in medicine. Saaleha strongly believes that the variety of collaborations she observes and partakes in at CCC are crucial building blocks for interdisciplinary practice that she hopes to apply further in her career and are models for how any team should operate.
