GCA Board of Directors

2017 Board of Directors

The Greenfield Community Association is governed by a community elected board of nine volunteer Directors.  They are elected annually to three year, staggered terms.   Elections take place during GCA’s annual meeting in January.  The following are the current 2017 board members and officers.

Geoff Campbell (President) and his wife Tonya moved into the neighborhood from California in 2004. Originally from Illinois, they chose to raise their three daughters in Greenfield because of its great livability, and have grown to love the feel of a small town within Pittsburgh. Since receiving his Bachelor’s from Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and his Masters of Architecture from UC-Berkeley, Geoff is now a Principal and the Director of Operations and Services at Rothschild Doyno Collaborative, an architecture and urban design firm located in the Strip District.

Kristi Heidel (Vice-President) moved to Pittsburgh, from Central PA to attend the University of Pittsburgh. After living in Shadyside, Oakland and Squirrel Hill, she ultimately chose Greenfield as the place to call home.
