Policies and Procedures Coordinator
Katherine Haynes joined the Land Trust for Tennessee in June 2018. In her role, Katherine manages the process of reviewing, revising and developing LTTN’s policies and procedures in preparation for reaccreditation through the Land Trust Alliance in 2020.
Katherine holds degrees from Hamilton, Harvard and Vanderbilt. She brings experience working with non-profit organizations and a penchant for understanding and improving institutional policies, procedures and practices.
Initially introduced to the benefits of a working farm as a young child in Brazil, Katherine believes passionately in the work of LTTN. She is committed to conservation and farmland preservation in her personal life. She and her husband engage in conservation activities with their children and strive to impart a respect for the land as well as an appreciation for the responsibility that comes with maintaining their third-generation family farm. In her leisure, she can be found gardening, hiking, learning about beekeeping and lavender cultivation, in a yoga pose or on a bicycle.
What do I love most about my job?
Tennessee’s most valuable resources include the working farms, historic properties, and parks. I love coming to work in a farm setting, where everyone associated with the organization is committed to protecting our natural and historic landscapes to make Tennessee a better place to live, work and play. I appreciate the opportunity to help others realize the infinite value of our open spaces for all generations, today and tomorrow.
