Kara is a non-profit administrative professional with more than 15 years of experience in operational support and organizational communications. During her career, she has worked with a variety of organizations, always with the goal of supporting mission-driven enterprises that benefit people, community, and the planet.


“We are delighted that GCCA will benefit from Kara’s non-profit and operational experience, as well as her commitment to making an impact in the community,” says Kim Fabian, Executive Director of the Greenville Center for Creative Arts. “In this critical time for our growth, her skills will help us take our facility and outreach to the next level so all members of our community feel welcome and have a great experience when they engage with GCCA.”

A native of Columbia, SC, Kara recently moved to Greenville after a long stay in Charleston, where she was Administrative and Communications Manager for the Avian Conservation Center as known as Center for Birds of Prey. During her time at Birds of Prey, she helped the organization grow extensively by expanding communications and fundraising events, while also improving internal processes and increasing operational efficiencies. Kara excels at stewardship and has demonstrated acumen in logistics and coordination, an important set of skills that will support GCCA’s continued growth.

Kara holds a B.A. in English from the University of South Carolina and received her M.B.A. from the University of Denver. A long-time proponent of the creative arts, when not in the outdoors with her two adopted pups, Loca and Zee, Kara enjoys painting, writing, and listening to music.
