Coming to America

Marina Kats is an independent thinker who will serve in Washington as a prudent decision maker to restore our government’s ability to deliver on the best interests of its citizens.

Marina came from the former Soviet Union in 1979, as a teenager, with no money and no understanding of the English language. Her first order of business was to learn as much English as possible as it became clear to her that the keys to success in America were education and hard work. Marina enrolled in community college, followed by Temple Business School, then Temple University School of Law, and concluded with an LLM in Trial Advocacy. She now proudly serves as the Vice- President of the Temple University Presidents’ Advisory Board. All throughout school, Marina held at least two jobs ranging from dental assistant to waitress. After school, Marina worked at a law firm until she decided to start her own firm in 1994.  Today, Marina owns a successful legal practice in Feasterville, Pennsylvania.

Making her Way
Marina has lectured at Temple University, the New Jersey State Bar Association and various other schools.  She has been honored by the former Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Ridge, as one of the “50 Best Business Women in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” as “Woman of the Year” by the Bucks County YMCA, and “Consumer Advocate of the Year” for three consecutive years. Philadelphia Magazine selected and featured Marina as one of Pennsylvania’s “Super Lawyers” in 2004 and in 2008, and Real Philly magazine recognized her as one of the “Women of the Year” for 2008. As the current President of the Russian-American Chamber of Commerce, Marina conducts regular lectures to its members and the community on various legal and civic issues.  She is a Board Member of the HIAS Organization which promotes legal immigration assistance.
 
 
Giving Back

In addition to her business pursuits, Marina is also actively involved with a number of charitable and civic organizations.  She is an appointed member of the Board of Trustees of the Albert Einstein Hospital Board and the Board of Overseers of the Albert Einstein Healthcare Network, and serves as a member of the Einstein Society where she has gained critical experience to understand patients’ needs in the healthcare system.  Also, she serves on the Physicians’ Advisory Board for Einstein Hospital where she interacts with doctors trying to provide the best care possible.

Marina has two beautiful daughters, Kelsey, who is a senior in high school, and Alexandra, who is entering the fifth grade.

As our Congresswoman, Marina will work to ensure that the same opportunity she found in America will be available to future generations of American citizens. Ultimately, Marina came to this country with nothing but a love for freedom and the belief that through hard work, anything is possible. 

Today, Marina has been presented with the opportunity to give back to the country that has given her so much.  Marina wants to be your next Congresswoman and to get Washington back to basics. With your support, she knows we can make it happen.
