Karissa Clampit helps oversee and assist with Change Elemental’s daily operations and provides support for our CoDirectors as well as our consulting and programmatic work.

Prior to joining Change Elemental, Karissa served as a Project Manager for MPUG (the Microsoft® Project Users Group). In this role, she coordinated and developed marketing campaigns, managed book publishing projects, edited videos, aided in strategic planning, created website content, and sustained external communications and public relations. Most notably, she led MPUG through the process of publishing their first book, Microsoft® Project Do’s and Don’ts. She also helped set-up the second edition (coming soon) prior to her departure.

Karissa holds a degree in International Business and Business Management from Eastern Michigan University. Since then, she has spent her time studying new technologies and practices to help a virtual world feel more human. When Karissa isn’t working, she enjoys traveling, kayaking, cooking (mostly eating), and taking photographs with her husband, Dan.
