Voyageurs National Park Liaison to the Board
Christina Hausman has been the executive director of Voyageurs National Park Association since July 2013. At VNPA she engages advocates, philanthropists, volunteers and the next generation of stewards on behalf of Minnesota’s only national park. She has over 6 years experience working in development and communications in the nonprofit industry and has previously worked for The Nature Conservancy and the Hennepin Health Foundation. Christina holds a B.A. in Biology and Government Relations, and a minor in Journalism from Augustana College, Sioux Falls, SD. On her time off you can find her taking photos, attempting new recipes, enjoying live music, or traveling to North Carolina to visit family. A nature enthusiast, she grew up taking family trips to America’s national parks and is thrilled to be supporting Voyageurs.
Director of Membership & Development
Kat Audette-Luebke is excited to join the staff of Voyageurs National Park Association. She has many years of experience in fundraising and outreach for nonprofit and political organizations, and a passion for the outdoors. For the past four years, she was the membership coordinator at Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance in Salt Lake City, working to protect the remaining wilderness-quality public lands in Utah. Prior to that time, she served in AmeriCorps VISTA, leading the outreach and fundraising efforts of Wasatch Community Gardens in Salt Lake City, Utah. Kat received her bachelor of science in horticulture from the University of Connecticut, and studied nonprofit management through the University of Utah’s Nonprofit Academy of Excellence. She loves exploring and photographing Minnesota’s beautiful wild places with her husband, working in her garden, and volunteering with animals. Growing up, she was lucky to spend many summer nights watching fireflies, eating marshmallows by the fire, and trying to evade mosquitoes. It is her hope that future generations of kids can continue to enjoy those same experiences in America’s great outdoors.
