The Council on Environmental Quality

Christy Goldfuss serves as Managing Director at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. CEQ helps to develop the Administration’s environmental and energy policies and initiatives and works closely with Federal agencies to implement them.

Christy has significant experience as a leader on a range of environmental issues, most recently as a deputy director of the National Park Service where she helped lead efforts to set and meet strategic goals related to conservation and preservation of America’s natural and cultural heritage. In this capacity, she identified ways to make Federal resources more accessible, including by spearheading the Administration’s “Every Kid in a Park” initiative. Prior to joining the Administration, Christy created and directed the Public Lands Project at the Center for American Progress.
