Madison Goddard, MSW
Clinician, North Coast Nurture Center
I was born and raised here in Humboldt County and returned home in 2017 after some time away. I am a social worker who is passionate about infant and early childhood mental health and development, and I work hard to ensure all families and children are able to access the services and support they need in order to be successful.
I am continuously amazed by this community and the quality of the resources we have to offer. I joined the board at CASA because I want to give back to an organization that gives so much to the vulnerable children and families in our community. I am currently in my first term as a board member.
In my free time, I love to travel and discover new places with my husband, or spend time relaxing at home with our two cats.
VP, Member Digital Services
I moved to the North Coast from the Bay Area and joined Coast Central Credit Union as VP – Member Digital Services at the start of 2019. I am a long time software developer, having taken my first programming course in 1967 – the vacuum tube days! I have been been working for the credit union movement for 35 years, and developed accounting systems for CPAs before that.
I am married, combined my wife Veronica and I have 4 children and 9 grandchildren. My favorite hobbies are sailing and cooking, and I am an avid amateur wine collector.
Real Estate Broker
I moved to Humboldt County with my husband and son in 2003 to be close to family. I instantly fell in love with the community. I’ve been a full-time Realtor since 1999. I recently opened my own Real Estate Brokerage – Trillium Realty Group in 2020.
I love Humboldt County and have a heart for serving this community. My first experience with CASA was serving as an advocate for 4 years where I completed 3 cases. I’ve seen first-hand, the work advocates do and the need for this organization. I’ve also enjoyed raising funds for the CASA Kidwalk and SuperKid Season with my “Team Trillium” for several years. I love getting my friends to help my team and in turn they get a better understanding of what CASA is all about. CASA of Humboldt does amazing work in our community. I am honored to serve in a new capacity on the board.
I’m married to the love of my life Richard and am lucky to have my family all living close by. In my free time I love to read, throw theme parties and take my dog to the beach.

I am a High Road Training Partnerships Program Manager for the California Workforce Development Board, working to expand upward mobility for people with barriers throughout the state of California. My work at the state level began after ten years of work with the County of Humboldt Economic Development Department, Public Health Department and Behavioral Health Department.
I received my MSW from Humboldt State University, focusing on rural and indigenous people, emphasizing adult and youth workforce development opportunities with concentrated wrap-around services. Before graduate school, I utilized my Bachelor of Business Administration and specialized in marketing and sustainable management in the small business industry of Humboldt County.
I joined the Humboldt County CASA board of directors in 2021 and enjoy serving as the board’s Secretary to support CASA services provided to the beautiful people of Humboldt County. I have been passionate about the mission of CASA since serving on the Zero to Eight (0 to 8) Mental Health Collaborative Council and the Child Abuse Prevention and Coordinating Council of Humboldt County. I have also served on the California Workforce Association Board and the DHHS - Behavioral Health Board.
I am originally from Milwaukee and have lived in Humboldt County for more than 20 years. I enjoy traveling with my husband and two daughters, spending time in the sun at the Salmon River, cooking new cuisines, and gardening/landscape design.
I was born in Humboldt county but grew up just over the county line in Trinity. I am the second oldest of 6 kid and grew up walking distance from my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. So to say I come from a big family is an understatement. Every family gathering was spent in the log cabin that my Pop had built; it took him 12years to finish it, and that dedication to finishing what you have started has been past down each generation.
Except for a few months where I lived in Mexico as an intern with a missionary couple, I haven’t gone too far from home. My husband and I actually bought the house that I grew up in from my parents and now we are starting our own family. We have two daughters so far, with plans to keep growing our family. Becoming a mother has been the most challenging thing I have ever done (and I lived in a country where I didn’t speak the language) and it has taught me so much about myself. Yet it is hands down the best thing I have ever done. My calling is being a mother and wife, but my job is being a Member Relationship Service Specialist at Coast Central Credit Union. I have been with the Credit Union for 5 years and love it. If and when I have free time, I enjoy reading and drinking coffee that is still hot. I am looking forward to serving on the Board of CASA.
