A longtime resident of Bucks County and Council Rock graduate, before Kristin Marcell was elected to the House for 2022-23 term, she was a communications professional, school board member and volunteer in our community.

In 2014, she attended her first school board meeting as a parent fighting to save their local elementary school from closure. She realized then that there was more she could do for her community.

She successfully ran for the Council Rock School Board in 2019, where she advocated for students and to give parents a voice in their kids’ education. She also worked with others to safely reopen Council Rock schools during the pandemic.

In addition to her work on the school board, Kristin served on the Middle Bucks Institute of Technology’s Executive Council.

Before serving on the school board, Marcell worked two decades in the private sector to provide strategic and communications counsel to businesses in the energy, environmental and utility industries.

Prior to entering the private sector, Kristin served in the public sector after graduating from college, working at the U.S. Department of Transportation as the communications director of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. She also served in the U.S. Congress where she learned first-hand about the legislative process.

Marcell resides in Wrightstown with her husband and their two children. She holds a master’s degree in public policy from George Washington University and a Bachelor of Arts in political science from Penn State University.
