Pamela Goddard, Director of NPCA's Chesapeake and Virginia Programs, joined NPCA in 2011 to engage park advocates and decision-makers in the Mid-Atlantic in support of strong park policies. When not busy with this mission, you might find her hanging out with her family outdoors or at hole-in-the-wall restaurants.
Pam works with local, state, and federal stakeholders to identify, restore, and conserve the 55 national parks, five national trails, and four national heritage areas in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
Before joining NPCA, Pam worked for nine years in the Sierra Club’s Legislative Office in Washington, D.C., on clean water, property rights, and on the Club’s political action committee. She spent three years as the campaign manager of the National Breast Cancer Coalition, advocating for federal research dollars and five years as the senior grassroots outreach manager for the National Wildlife Federation. Pam enjoys spending time with her family exploring our national parks.
