From her service to the Commonwealth as Chief Counsel to the Department of Revenue, she brings strong legislative and budget skills. She is an honors graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Villanova Law School and has clerked in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, and for Senator Patrick Leahy on the US Senate Judiciary Committee. 

As an advocate, Gretchen fights for our neighbors on the Cheltenham Township Economic Development Task Force and Human Rights Commission, and has decades of volunteerism on Democratic campaigns and to protect the integrity of the electoral process. She is also a consistent volunteer at the polls and serves as a Judge of Election for her voting precinct (Cheltenham 6-1).
