Kat McGinley is a West Palm Beach native, a Dreyfoos School of the Arts alumna, and a University of Florida graduate.
Kat joined the Junior League of the Palm Beaches in 2015, in hopes of meeting like-minded individuals and finding opportunities to volunteer. Kat has always been involved with the local Palm Beach County community in some capacity, whether it was attending a local fundraiser or volunteering with a local organization. Throughout her time with JLPB, Kat has served on the Community Council – first on the Done in a Day committee, then Co-Chairing Done in a Day Committee and Co-Chairing Boys & Girls Club Committee before becoming Community Vice President for 2019-2020. In the summer of 2018, Kat led her committee to renovate the library at the Florence De George Boys & Girls Club, allowing her to combine her passions for volunteering, reading, and watching HGTV. She is extremely passionate about the local community and prides herself on coming up with creative ways to get involved.
Professionally, Kat is the Director of Marketing and Brand Development at Brown Distributing Company, where she works with dozens of breweries to develop and market new products. In this role, she has introduced local breweries to several organizations to create awareness and raise funds for various causes. At Brown, Kat also started a community service initiative where she organized employees to volunteer with local organizations such as Quantum House, Forgotten Soldiers Outreach, and Community Greening.
Kat is competitive, organized, extremely loyal, and genuinely loves being out in the community and volunteering. When she isn’t volunteering, you can find her attending a cycling class, enjoying the green market with her dog Derby, or in search of a really good slice of pizza. She is extremely excited to serve on the Board of Directors as JLPB embarks on determining our next Issue-Based Community Impact area.
