About Katie

Kathleen ("Katie") McGinty is ninth of ten children, all born and raised in northeast Philadelphia. Her father, John Patrick McGinty, was a Philadelphia police officer and her mother, Alma Berry McGinty, worked as a restaurant hostess. The McGinty's prided themselves on hard work--and on lots of fun and laughter. Katie has a unique connection to her home state, having lived with her husband, Karl, and three daughters in central Pennsylvania and working in nearly every county in her six years as Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection.

Katie and her siblings went to Resurrection of Our Lord grade school. Katie went on to be the Valedictorian of her graduating class at St. Hubert's High School. She earned a full scholarship and studied chemistry at St. Joseph's University. Earning top grades and honors there, she set off for the Ivy League. She was awarded a scholarship to study law at Columbia University. From there, Katie secured a judicial clerkship that took her to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C. and won the Congressional Fellowship of the American Chemical Society, an honor that enabled her to work on Capitol Hill. With her background in science and technology, Katie was passionate about the competitiveness of U.S. high-tech companies in industries like semiconductors and biotechnology, and focused her fellowship year on initiatives to strengthen patent protections, encourage manufacturing, and support science education.
