Kat McGinley, Community Vice President

Ket McGinley

Kat joined the Junior League of the Palm Beaches in 2015, in hopes of meeting like-minded individuals and finding opportunities to volunteer. Born and raised in West Palm Beach, Kat has always been involved with the local Palm Beach County community in some capacity, whether it was attending a local fundraiser or volunteering at a local organization. As a JLPB New Member, she served as a Community Lead Active for Kids in the Kitchen, and since then, she has served as a Communications Liaison for Done in a Day, Co-Chair for Done in a Day, most recently was the Co-Chair for the Boys & Girls Club Committee. Last summer, Kat and her committee renovated the library at the Florence De George Boys & Girls Club, allowing her to combine her passions for volunteering, reading, and watching HGTV.

In her professional career, Kat is the Director of Marketing & Brand Development at Brown Distributing, where she works with dozens of local breweries across South Florida. At Brown, she started a community impact initiative where she encouraged several departments, retailers, and breweries to give back to local organizations supporting local veterans, including Believe With Me, Forgotten Soldiers Outreach, Wounded Veterans Relief Fund, and Soldiers’ Angels. Kat is a proud alumnus of the University of Florida and Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts. 

Kat is competitive, organized, and 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, taking her dog Derby to the green market, or in search of a really good slice of pizza.
