Kate Acuff
Jack Jouett Magisterial District

Kate Acuff was elected to the Albemarle County Public School Board in November, 2013 as the representative from the Jack Jouett Magisterial District.

Ms. Acuff, who is a health policy consultant, serves on the Board of the University of Virginia Physicians Group, on the Board of Mental Health America-Charlottesville/Albemarle and on the Steering Committee of the Community Mental Health and Wellness Coalition.  She previously was a consultant to the Virginia Supreme Court’s Commission on Mental Health Law Reform, an Adjunct Assistant Professor in Emory University’s School of Public Health and a Vice President of Policy and Education with the National Public Health and Hospitals Institute.

Given her expertise and interest in health issues and policy, Ms. Acuff is an especially strong advocate for providing safe and healthy learning environments in schools.  Among her priorities is to support collaborative programs among students, parents, school staff and other members of the community to continue the division’s progress in its bullying prevention programs.  Ms. Acuff also believes that access by students to pre-K instruction should be expanded to reduce the opportunity gap among children in Albemarle County.

A native of the Midwest, Ms. Acuff is a graduate of the University of Tulsa.  She received her Master’s in Microbiology & Immunology from the University of Colorado and her Ph.D. and a M.P.H. in Public Health and Public Policy and Management from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.  She also earned a J.D. from Georgetown University.
