Melissa Goldberg joined East Tennessee Clean Fuels (ETCF) as a Project Manager in August 2016. She brings varied experience from her career in environmental protection, conservation, and outreach to reduce the use of petroleum in Tennessee by promoting alternative fuel technologies and energy efficiency in transportation.
Prior to joining ETCF, Melissa worked in the Conservancy of Southwest Florida’s Development Office supporting fundraising through major gifts, annual giving and membership, special events, and a capital campaign. In her three years with the National Park Service, Melissa assisted Yosemite National Park’s American Indian Liaison Program in fostering consultation with American Indian communities, ensuring cultural and natural resource protection in partnership with traditionally associated tribes and groups.
