Anne Lynam Goddard: President & CEO, ChildFund International (USA)

My NativeAdVert:

Anne Lynam Goddard has been a passionate voice for protecting the world’s most vulnerable children for more than 30 years. She began her career in the Peace Corps, living in a mud house in Kenya and traveling among remote villages by motorbike. After earning a master’s degree in public health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, she joined the international huma
nitarian organization CARE and lived and worked overseas for almost 20 years, serving in a variety of roles in Somalia, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Egypt.

In 2007, Anne joined ChildFund International (USA) as president and CEO. At ChildFund, she has drawn on her personal experiences to direct the organization’s efforts to promote child protection strategies around the world, raising awareness of the threats to children’s ability to find opportunity, hope and self-sufficiency. Building on the organization’s nearly 80-year history, she has also implemented a strategy that expands and deepens ChildFund’s worldwide efforts to improve children’s health, education and economic conditions. Anne is active in her own community and in other nonprofit organizations. She is currently a board member of the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition and InterAction, a member of the federal Advisory Committee on Voluntary Foreign Aid, and serves on the executive advisory committee for the University of Richmond’s Robins School of Business. In 2009, Goddard received an honorary Ph.D. from Assumption College (Mass.).

My Goal of the Day: Explore the exciting innovations being shared by ChildFund staff from all over the globe during our two-day Innovation Fair.

My Thought of the Day: What can I do to make the life of a child better today?

My Action of the Day: Make a personal connection with as many visiting ChildFund staff as possible.

My Deed of the Day: Leave the Innovation Fair knowing I thanked or complimented at least five people for a job well done.

My Tip of the Day: Always seek out opportunities to learn something new.  You never know what spark it will bring to your own work.

My Pic of the Day:

A Day in My Life:

What do you love most about Your City? 

I have just moved into the city of Richmond, Va., from the suburbs.  I really love that I live directly across from 300 acres of wonderful parkland that borders the James River, yet can walk 10 minutes to shops, restaurants, etc.  I have fallen in love with a city full of history and culture that is also a great foodie and craft beer town.  

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

Sunday brunch cooked by my wonderful husband.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – Drinking my first cup of tea before I get out of bed.  I don’t rush in the morning.  I take the time I need to get ready for the day.

10:00 AM – During the week, in meetings with my team.  On weekends, I am out walking through the parks at my doorstep and loving every minute. It’s my time to decompress from the week and give space to those sparks to happen.

12:00 PM - Favorite Lunch spot/meal?

Any outdoor restaurant or café. 

7:00 PM -  Watching news and catching up on the day.

11:00 PM – Sleeping!  My goal is to get 7.5 hours of sleep per night and I usually make it by going to sleep by 10 pm and getting up at 6 am.  Adequate sleep is important!

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

I drink lots of water throughout the day.  At the end of the day, a glass of red wine is a treat, on Fridays it might be two!

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account? 

For an app, it’s my Fitbit.  For Instagram, my favorite is my daughter’s page of course!

What should everyone try at least once? 

Visit a developing country to understand how the other half of the world lives.  I guarantee it will change your view of the world and your own life in many ways.

Where do you enjoy getting lost? 

In a good book.  Particularly on a long plane trip to another part of the world.  It makes the hours fly by.
