LeeAnn Vandervort,
Executive Director

One of our founders, Lee Ann joined The Treehouse full time after more than thirty years in the insurance industry. Her position includes program administration, public and community relations, and fund-raising, but she considers the daily interaction with our strong and caring staff and with the young mothers we serve as the greatest and most rewarding of her responsibilities.








Cristin Coats,
Operations Manager

Cristin has a knack for making connections with everyone she meets. Her kind-hearted nature is balanced by her strong desire to make a true difference in the lives of the moms and babies we serve at The Treehouse. In addition to managing the day-to-day operations, Cristin assists the Executive Director and manages the marketing and publications materials. Her goal is simple, to give donors a little insight into the blessings of The Treehouse. Cristin graduated from Newman University with an MBA in Leadership, and from Wichita State University with a BA in Marketing. Her passion for serving moms and babies stems from her own experiences as a mother and wife to her children Eli and Eva and husband Todd.
