Meet The Team of Volunteers

Board of Directors


Jason Houle

I’m a new member to the board, but not to the community or lakeshore.  I grew up in Forest Lake, married a Forest Lake grad, and moved to Chisago.  I have two children in the Chisago Lakes School district and currently reside on the south side of Big Green Lake.  I am a proud local business owner and supporter of the power sports industry. 

We moved onto Green Lake after visiting all the Chisago lakes and found this to be our home.  We look forward to many incredible memories moving forward, as our family loves to:  fish, boat, boating watersports, paddleboard and just enjoy the stunning views. 

My pledge is to continue what our great past presidents have built, and ensure the lake will be passed onto our children in better condition than when we loved enjoying it.

Vice President

Travis LaMotte

I’m a new member to the board in 2021, but have been a part of Green Lake my entire life.  I grew up on the south end of Green Lake and bought my own home on the lake in 2013. 

My grandparents built the lighthouse as you enter the south bay and I have many family members who still live on the lake.  I am married with two children who enjoy the lake as much as I do. 

We keep ourselves busy in the summer with wakeboarding, surfing, swimming, paddle boarding and occasional fishing off the dock.  My goal is to continue to take steps forward in improving all of our lake living as the people before me have.  I look forward to meeting more of the great residents of Green Lake in the future.

I became part of the Green Lake Association Board in 2022 and am grateful for the opportunity. I am passionate about the lake, and everything stated in the Association’s mission statement.

I grew up and graduated from White Bear Lake. Growing up in White Bear Lake, we spent a lot of time on the lake and that is where my love of the water started. We fished, water skied, swam, or just took in the shoreline on a leisurely cruise. It has been a goal of mine since I was a child to live on a lake. Early in my working career, I had a laminated picture of my dream lake home on my desk for motivation of my goal of someday living on a lake.

I recently lived in Ham Lake before buying a lot on the southwest end of Green Lake and building our forever house in 2022. I am married and have 4 kids with only one left at the house. I own a manufacturing company and my wife Janae Ashton is a real estate agent. We were able to enjoy the lake all last summer while our house was being built and we could not be happier with our decision.

We are looking forward to being part of the community and meeting a lot of new people on the lake.


Michelle Carlson

I am the current Secretary of the Green Lake Association and have held the position since 2021. I grew up on Turtle Lake in Shoreview, MN and am a lake girl at heart. I have been on Green Lake since 2007, and I reside on the East side of the lake next to Ojiketa Park with my husband Neil and 2 boys. I work from home as a Talent Acquisition Consultant for Philips Healthcare.

During the Winter months, we are avid snowmobilers and are very active in Chisago Lakes Hockey Association. I manage my sons hockey team and hold a board position. My favorite part about living on a lake is Summer. As a family, we are very active on the lake whether we are skiing, surfing, tubing or doing a nightly evening cruise. See you on the water!
