In 1988, she initiated a reading program, “Book Buddies” for underserved children in Greenville, South Carolina. The program was recognized in 1993 as “volunteer program of the year” by the South Carolina Education Board.
After graduating Phi Betta Kappa from Furman University with B.A. in Political Science and History and spending many years volunteering for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Goffinet retired to Litchfield Beach in Pawleys Island.
