Current Board Members

Larissa Chastain '91
HMCAC President

I graduated from Auburn in 1991 with a BFA in Graphic Design. At Auburn I enjoyed studying art, playing intramural football and volleyball, and being a Dunkin' Darlin'. I worked for the AlumNews and managed the Arts & Engineering Dept at the AUBookstore. Since graduation, I have worked for several ad agencies and have freelanced in Huntsville area. I am married to Mark Chastain, a pharmacist at Propst Drugs. Our three children are Carley, Claire and Ethan. 

My favorite Auburn moment would have to be December 2, 1989 - the first time we truly played Alabama at home. It was great to experience this game as a student and witness Auburn beat an undefeated Alabama team. My interests are painting, Boot Camp, running and biking. My greatest achievements are my children- they are my jewels and I look forward to seeing the amazing things they will accomplish with their lives. 


Kat Balch

Katrine Balch '92 & '96

I have been on the Board since 2011. Graduating from Auburn with a BA in Sociology in 1992 and in 1996 with a Masters in Education. I work for a NASA contractor and do education activities for NASA. I married an Ole Miss grad and have two elementary aged kids. My favorite Auburn moments involve working with Camp War Eagle as a graduate student. Sharing the AU family traditions and spirit with new students and their parents was a lot of fun. I enjoy traveling to Auburn games both on the road and at home. Since I am also tied to the Ole Miss family, our family knows how to tailgate and we do it up big when the two schools play each other.

Lasonja

I am married to Eric Greene and have two beautiful daughters, Taylor and Sydney. Although I was born and raised in Meridian, MS I feel like a native Alabamian having been here for over 20 years.  My favorite AU moment was during an International Business Class in Dublin with the best classmates ever.  I love spending time with my family, friends and working in the community.

Broadway

Jonathan Broadway, '00

I graduated in Summer of 2000 (last quarter of the quarter system before they moved to the semester system) with a degree in Marketing. I was on the Auburn Basketball practice team my freshman year and then I was on the Auburn Water Ski team from 1995 – 1998. I work in real estate. I just started my own real estate company, LHT Commercial Real Estate, LLC. My family develops Dollar General stores across the country and I find the land for new stores. My brother develops the property and then I sell the property off to investors across the country.

My wife is Tanya Broadway, she teaches English at Grissom High and is the volleyball coach at Grissom. We have three children, Landon (6), Hudson (5) and Tinsley (9 months). I was born in Gadsden, AL in 1976 and moved here in 1977. I attended Grissom High School. I enjoy hanging out on the boat and jet ski and being at the lake and hanging out with my family. My boys and I love going to Auburn football games and love going to see the Dallas Cowboys, Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Braves, Miami Heat and as many sporting events as we can. My favorite Auburn moment was going to Arizona and watching Auburn win the National Championship. Right behind that is the Iron Bowl of 2010.


Tiffany Noel ’91 and ‘93

 As a native of Huntsville and a graduate of Grissom High School, I graduated from Auburn in 1991 with a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering and in 1993 with a Master’s in Business Administration.  After a few years working as an engineer at SCI in Huntsville, I moved to Washington, DC and spent over a decade working on Capitol Hill for Congressman Robert Aderholt.  I moved home to Huntsville in 2010, and am currently employed as the District Director for Congressman Mo Brooks. 

I had a lot of great Auburn experiences and am grateful for the life-long friendships from those years.  I remember walking across the stage as a third generation Electrical Engineer from the Auburn College of Engineering.  But my favorite memory of my time at Auburn was the first ever Auburn-Alabama game played in Auburn.  I will never forget the orange and blue haze over the stadium from the paper shakers and the thrill of beating an undefeated Alabama team.


Karen Miller Kimbrough '84

I am a native of Huntsville (Both my parents worked for NASA) and a graduate of Huntsville High School.  I graduated from Auburn in 1984 with a degree in Personnel Management and Industrial Relations.  While at Auburn I was involved in the Greek system, Intramural sports, and the School of Business.  I served as President of the Auburn Collegiate chapter of American Society of Personnel Administrators (ASPA), and was a member of the roundtable, The Auburn Business Council.  My years at Auburn are some of the most precious of my life.  Not only was it the years of Coach Dye, Charles Barkley, Bo and Frank Thomas but the friendships I made are the life-long kind.  My children are friends with my Auburn friends’ children!  The Auburn family is truly a family.

I work part time for Brahmin Handbags as well as the watch lines of Anne Klein and Vince Camuto.

I am happily married to Hal Kimbrough.  We just celebrated our 30th anniversary.  We have 3 children, Ben (25), Thomas (22) and Anna Katherine (19).  Thomas and Anna Katherine are students at Auburn.  Our family loves college football, but we are a house divided.  I love serving on the Board of the Huntsville-Madison County Auburn Club and enjoy volunteering in the community for the Huntsville public school system, Huntsville Symphony Orchestra Guild, The Gothic Guild, Girls Inc. and other community groups.  I love spending time with my family at the lake, traveling with Hal, and playing bridge.
