Kayla NoelDirector of Operations, HR, & Culture
Kayla Noel embodies the true team spirit of The Land Trust for Tennessee – dedicated, passionate, and always ready and willing to go the extra mile to support our mission. Kayla serves as Operations & Finance Manager, overseeing a wide range of tasks to ensure The Land Trust operates as efficiently as possible.
Growing up, Kayla fell in love with the beauty and adventure of the outdoors while exploring what was then rural Smyrna, Tennessee, with neighborhood friends and attending summer camp at Horton Haven Christian Camp in Chapel Hill, Tennessee. Kayla has long felt the importance of sharing nature and knowledge with future generations, especially through her work at Horton Haven as a camp counselor and then working with at-risk youth at Rocketown in Nashville. She graduated from Lipscomb University with a degree in Family Relations and Management.
Kayla spends her spare time sharing a meal and playing games with her family and friends. She enjoys gardening and seeking out historical and scenic landmarks with her husband, RC, and their dog, Beverly.
I love having a direct hand in the conservation of the land I have grown to cherish so much. I fully believe that what we are doing here is directly impacting the lives of the present and future generations for the better, and that makes what we do extremely important.
