Official Biography

U.S. Representative Chrissy Houlahan is an Air Force veteran, engineer, entrepreneur, and educator who is continuing her career of service as the first woman ever to represent Pennsylvania's 6th District in Congress. 

Chrissy is the daughter and granddaughter of Holocaust survivors who came to America with nothing. She grew up in a military family; her parents met when her father and grandfather flew P3s in the same Navy squadron. She earned her engineering degree from Stanford with an ROTC scholarship that launched her service in the U.S. Air Force and Air Force Reserves, and later earned her M.S. in Technology and Policy from MIT. 

Chrissy has helped lead several thriving southeastern Pennsylvania companies, including AND1, a basketball apparel company headquartered in Paoli, and B Lab, the organization that launched the B Corporation movement. She went on to serve in Teach for America as a chemistry teacher at Simon Gratz High School in North Philadelphia and then led and scaled a nonprofit helping thousands of underserved students all across America build their literacy skills. 

These experiences helped shape her political vision of a great nation united by shared values that leaves no one behind. She is committed to fighting for access to quality, affordable health care, common sense gun safety, government accountability and transparency, and working to build a strong, stable economy with good jobs and good benefits for everyone. While on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, she worked to promote peace and stability abroad, leading bipartisan legislation to address global malnutrition that was signed into law in October 2022. 

Since serving her community in Congress, she has been awarded the Abraham Lincoln Leadership for America Award and three Congressional Management Foundation Democracy Awards. The Leadership for America award is presented by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to honor lawmakers for their work supporting a free enterprise system. The Democracy Awards recognized her outstanding achievement in the categories of Transparency and Accountability, Constituent Services, and Workplace Environment. Chrissy is the first member of Congress in history to win two categories in a single congressional term.  

Chrissy is a leader driven by a spirit of service. She's a mom, a longtime resident of southeastern Pennsylvania, and a congressional representative working to solve real problems for the people and communities of Chester and Berks Counties.
