Club Leadership


The Club Leadership Team is a group of dedicated volunteers that handles the necessary, behind-the scenes administrative stuff that keeps the club running.  The Leadership Team consists of seven Board Members and one Coordinator.  The Leadership Team is all about planning and execution. 


Board members and two Coordinators work with trip leaders to make sure that the calendar has plenty of fun events for members to attend.  We also plan club meetings, parties and training sessions.  We interact with the American Canoe Association on behalf of the club, oversee safety for the club, manage the website, and approve funds as needed to make it all happen.    


Contact us if you have a question or comment for the Board.

Constantin Platon

Like so many other members he shares a background in geology. You will also learn that he is well experienced in tennis, biking, climbing, hiking and camping as just as critical, teaching. On to kayaking, Constantin has completed a number of ACA and National Outdoor leadership skills courses. He has assembled a fleet of kayaks to guide local enthusiasts young and old. Contantin's travels extensively in his pursuits to paddle rivers out West and the Florida Everglades. The Platon family is often enjoying the same adventures, so try to keep up! 

Phil Salvador

I enjoy leading trips and training sessions for HASK.  I currently (2021) can offer HASK members training in paddle stroke skills, self and assisted rescues, navigation, rolling, towing, VHF radio use, and kayak tripping and camping. I am certified by ACA in kayaking at L2 level (Essentials of Kayak Touring).  I have passed ACA sea kayaking skill assessments up through L4.   I am certified by NOLS as a Wilderness First Responder.  Please feel free to contact me about trips or training I can offer you.

Lisa Kinsey
is the Club Membership Director. I spend my weekdays working as the CFO for a pipeline service company and look forward to weekends when I can get outdoors.  I canoed and kayaked occasionally growing up, but I started doing more kayaking in 2020 during the Covid pandemic and was introduced to HASK in 2022.  I am honored to serve in this position and help new members join the organization.
