Govoni leads Marine Fisheries Administrative Service Office

8-point rule

 

 
MOREHEAD CITY — When Beth Govoni took the lead of the Administrative Service Office at the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries, it was a natural progression from the job she had been doing.

As the division’s grants program manager, she had already worked with the budget officers in every section of the agency – even the Maintenance Services and Marine Fisheries Commission sections deal with grants.

“I’ve touched pretty much everything in this division,” Govoni said.

On July 1, she assumed responsibility for all the division’s budgets as the new Administrative Services Section chief. She replaced Suzanne Guthrie, who retired June 30.

Govoni started with the division in January 2013 as the Coastal Recreational Fishing License Grant Project coordinator. In June of 2014, she was promoted to the division’s grants program manager, where she supervised staff of the division’s various grant programs and purchasing and contracts offices.

Prior to coming to Marine Fisheries, Govoni held a variety of financial and administrative jobs, including positions at the North Carolina Ferry Division in Morehead City and at Duke University’s Marine Lab in Beaufort. At Duke, she served as the executive officer of the Duke/University of North Carolina Oceanographic Consortium and the Research Vessel Cape Hatteras. She was responsible for all financial aspects of the ship, including National Science Foundation grants.

Even her move to the division seemed a natural one.

“It was serendipity because I already knew about the Coastal Recreational Fishing License Grants,” Govoni said.

The division had used the Cape Hatteras for its winter tagging cruises (funded by a Coastal Recreational Fishing License Grant).

Govoni, 35, grew up in Beaufort and graduated from East Carteret High School in 1999. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Govoni lives in a Carteret County community called The Straits with her husband, Daniel, and 7-year-old son, John Thomas.
