In 2017 Karen Profita brought her extensive marketing, fundraising, and management experience to Audubon where she oversees the Louisiana state office. Karen’s previous experience as the Executive Director of the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board gave her an up close look at the impact the disappearing coastline is having on coastal populations and the seafood industry. Having served as President and CEO of the Capital Area United Way in Baton Rouge and as a Senior Vice President working internationally on behalf of Children’s Miracle Network, she is especially sensitive to the impacts a changing coastal landscape has on the human population that has called the coast home for generations. She is passionate about the coastal work, firmly believing that where birds thrive, people prosper.
