Mandy Goff is a field instructor for The National Center for Outdoor and Adventure Education (NCOAE). Previously, Mandy worked for NCOAE’s sister organization — Education Without Walls. She is also currently the program director at Cedarkirk Camp and Conference Center in Lithia, FL, and before that, was the program director and assistant director at Johnsonburg Camp and Retreat Center (Frelinghuysen Township, NJ).

Originally from Illinois, Mandy currently lives outside of Tampa, Fla., where she enjoys riding her bike, hiking and traveling. She says a favorite part of working for NCOAE is meeting and getting to know the variety of staff members on any given trip.

Mandy holds memberships in a number of outdoor education-focused organizations, including the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT), the American Camp Association (ACA) and the Association for Experiential Education (AEE).She is passionate about all things outdoors and has seen first-hand the difference that outdoor experiences and the communities formed there can make in a person’s life. Citing her grandfather as the cornerstone of the family because he was always around when needed, Mandy said she intends to stay in outdoor education and recreation far into the future because helping others is also her passion.
