Michele Vaughn

Regional Director, Pennsylvania Federation of Democratic Women

Michele Vaughn serves as Regional Director for the Pennsylvania Federation of Democratic Women and the Chair for the Chester County Democratic Women’s Leadership Initiative (CCDWLI). The Chester County Democratic Women’s Leadership Initiative was formed in an effort to bring the issues that concern women, organized labor and working families to the forefront of the political process.

Prior to her involvement with these women’s organization, Michele Vaughn served as the Chester County Democratic Committee Chair from 2006-2014. Prior to her service as chair, she served as Vice-Chair for the committee from 2000-2006. In addition, she has served for the last 20 years as an East Whiteland Township Committee Person.

From January 1998 to December 2003, she served on the East Whiteland Township Board of Supervisors. Elected as the first Democratic woman to serve, my focus was on addressing responsible development and planning, environmental cleanup at two Superfund sites, and creating a sense of community through the growth of parks and recreation.

As a Township Supervisor, she launched East Whiteland Township’s first Community Health Day to focus on the health of ourselves and our families. She worked with the Community Volunteers in Medicine to provide free mammograms to uninsured or underinsured women through the Fox Chase Cancer Center.

She graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry and earned her M.B.A. in Pharmaceutical Marketing at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia.

She has been employed for the last thirteen years at Johnson & Johnson in the Commercial Pharmaceuticals Information Technology Division.
