Lula Lake Land Trust Welcomes New Director Of Development And Communications

Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Lula Lake Land Trust announced on Tuesday that Kathryn “Kat” Volzer has joined the staff as the new director of Development and Communications.  Ms. Volzer joins Lula Lake after five years as the assistant director of Alumni Communications, Records, and Annual Giving for Georgia Perimeter College (now Georgia State University). She graduated Magna cum Laude with a B.A. in Communication and English in 2009 from Coker College, and received a M.S. in Public Relations from Boston University in 2011. An avid mountain biker and outdoor enthusiast, she also served as a Board member and volunteer for Sopo Bicycle Cooperative in Atlanta.

A native of Hendersonville, Tn., Ms. Volzer recalls summers spent in the Chattanooga area, playing softball and soccer tournaments and attending camp at the Tennessee Camp for Diabetic Children in Soddy Daisy.

“I’ve been in and out of the Chattanooga area for years,” she said. “My husband and I decided to move here from the Atlanta area because we feel at home in the smaller town and we love everything about the outdoors. Chattanooga seemed like the perfect fit.”

Ms. Volzer joins the Lula Lake team of Patrick Kelly, land manager, and Mike Pollock, executive director. Mr. Pollock was impressed by her extensive social media background and technical savvy.

“Her strengths in emerging areas of communications, as well as in more traditional outlets such as newsletters, made Kat an excellent candidate for our growing organization,” he said. “She already has great ideas for raising our profile within the community and telling the Lula Lake story to an expanding audience.”

A couple of hours later I went to retrieve the story and – zip! nada! ... (click for more)
