We want you to get to know our Board of Directors better, since they are all here to serve you! Let’s meet our Vice President of Convention Heidi Goddi.
Heidi Goddi, Vice President of Convention, has been involved in PTA for 21 years. Her favorite thing about PTA is empowering and educating our members.
Heidi’s husband, Martin, teaches sixth grade and has recently joined her in PTA leadership. He stepped up to be our District President in 2017 and currently chairs the California State PTA Student Involvement Committee. They have two children who are the light of their lives. She couldn’t be more proud of them. Paige, 27, is a 911 dispatcher and getting married this September. Brad, 25, works as an automotive technician for Toyota. Her pets include a cattle dog named Spots, who is constantly herding us, three cats, Fang, Flash and Jack, who were born wild, and a beta fish named Catnip.
Heidi has worked for worked Thrifty Supply Company, a wholesale plumbing, heating and industrial water works supply company for 35 years. She loves to garden, go motorcycle riding, kayaking, and craft things with her hands. She has made jewelry, dabbled in water colors and acrylics, and her most current obsession is crocheting.
“I love the way that PTA levels the playing field. It doesn’t matter where you live, how much money you make, if you graduated college or not. PTA gives you what you need to be the best advocate for all children.”
