Kristin will be the only LGBTQ woman in the Pennsylvania State Legislature
Kristin Seale was raised by a hard working single mother in Baltimore, MD, who raised her to believe that if they had enough to eat and a place to sleep, it was their responsibility to serve others in need. She spent her childhood volunteering with and without her mother at the MD School for the Blind, a homeless breakfast, peer groups for children of separation and divorce, and the first wave of people living with HIV/AIDS. In 5th grade Kristin was elected Class Executive and worked that school year leading her grade in work with a state legislator on Maryland’s first child safety seat bill, including testifying at a hearing in Annapolis. By the end of that school year the law passed, and Kristin was hooked on community-led public service.
Kristin is Director of Operations for an energy nonprofit in Philadelphia, and has been a public servant throughout her career. She has a long track record of protecting and supporting communities in public health, poverty law and energy. Kristin earned a Bachelors of Public and Community Health from New Mexico State University, and a Masters of Public Administration from Villanova University.
