Goodman was an early contributor to PlanPhilly and helped shape the site in its first iteration. As PlanPhilly has grown, Goodman has represented the publisher and provided professional planning input and project management support as the site expanded its beat coverage, went through multiple redesigns, conducted an internal strategic plan, and researched revenue generation opportunities.
