McGinn spent the 2002 election cycle as a legislative communications specialist at the National Republican Congressional Committee. She also was deputy spokesperson for the House Government Reform Committee under Rep. Dan Burton (R-Ind.)
McGinn began her career in the fundraising department of the National Association of Homebuilders in 1999.
A native of Florida, McGinn received a B.A. in political science from Rollins College in Orlando. She lives in Arlington, Virginia, with her husband and two daughters.
