Katie McLaughlin

Hi everyone! I’m Katie McLaughlin and I will be serving as the Elections Chair this upcoming year. I am from Erie, PA and have a good amount of hometown pride (see quote) and ridiculous stories from home. Outside of SGB, I am on the associate board of the pre-law fraternity Phi Alpha Delta, a First Year Mentor, a member of the Political Science Student Association, and I intern for the Small Business & Neighborhood Redevelopment office in the Mayor’s Office! I also have a passion for playing tennis (poorly) and comedy. If you have any questions about the election process or running, feel free to reach out to me!
