About Daffny Pitchford

Daffny Pitchford is the Assistant Regional Director of the Office of Communications for the Southeast Region.

Her path to this position, to which she was named in late 2020, began in 1998. She’d recently graduated that year from North Carolina Central University with a degree in biology. When the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service offered her a spot in its Outstanding Scholar Program, Daffny said yes.

Her career has included several stops within the Service’s National Wildlife Refuge System. Daffny taught youth about all things wild in Virginia Beach as an Outdoor Recreation Planner. As an Assistant Refuge Supervisor, Daffny oversaw Refuge operations from Virginia to Maine. She also served as an Assistant Refuge Manager and Project Leader in the field. Moving to the Southeast, Daffny worked as both a Refuge Supervisor and Lead Division Chief.

No matter what job she has held, Daffny has been guided by a love for the natural world and a desire to help others. She brings that commitment to the Office of Communications, too.

In her latest position, Daffny wants to ensure that she and her colleagues are an extension of all other programs – with a role in communicating the excellent accomplishments and stories of the people and events that make strides in conservation every day.
