OH-01: Kate Schroder (D)
Kate Schroder is a health care leader and a bi-partisan problem solver.
A fifth generation Cincinnatian, a cancer survivor and a mom, Schroder has spent her career lowering health care costs and improving health outcomes.
Schroder has been immersed in health care and civic affairs for the past 15 years. She most recently served as vice president of the Clinton Health Access Initiative, where she improved treatment rates for childhood illnesses in limited-resource countries.
She was appointed to the Cincinnati Board of Health in 2016 and served as the Finance Chair until 2020. In 2017, she was named a WCPO Next Nine honoree, distinguishing her as one of nine rising stars who are transforming the health care sector.
Schroder is the second of four children raised in a 5th generation Cincinnati family. She grew up in Pleasant Ridge among a family of medical professionals who taught her that service to others is a core value.
Schroder attended grade school at Nativity School and high school at Ursuline Academy, where she served as student body president. She pursued higher education at Indiana University, where she was student body treasurer. After graduation, she worked in legislative politics for three years—first for Sen. Evan Bayh in D.C. and then for the Cincinnati City Council.
Schroder received her M.B.A. from Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 2004. She used her degree to join the Advisory Board Company in D.C. as a healthcare researcher and consultant. She then relocated to Africa through the Clinton Health Access Initiative to serve as the Zambia Country Director for two years.
During this time she launched programs in pediatric HIV, lab services, and human resources for health. Upon returning to the U.S., she has served in several leadership positions, managed global programs in children’s health, and published her results in academic journals.
Kate and her husband, John Juech, currently live in Clifton with their two children—a 7-year old daughter Josie and 5-year old son Peter.
