As a small business woman, author, mother, grandmother, and Member of Congress, Marsha Blackburn has dedicated her service to making America a more prosperous place to live. No stranger to adversity and hard work, Marsha went to college on a 4-H scholarship and worked her way through school selling books for the Southwestern Company. Whether it is was leading the fight to defeat the proposed state income tax during her time in the Tennessee State Senate or her efforts in Congress to restore fiscal responsibility, Marsha has fought tirelessly for the principles and values that unite conservatives. Representing Tennessee’s 7th District, Marsha continues to advocate for a small, efficient federal government that is accountable to its citizens. Marsha has been honored with the Distinguished Leader Award from the Susan B. Anthony Foundation, the Iron Jawed Angel Award for Excellence in Public Service, an honorary doctorate in letters from King University, the Congressional Grammy by the Recording Academy, and the Health IT Now Innovation Award among others. She currently holds a seat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee serving as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Communications and Technology.
Marsha and her husband Chuck live in Williamson County, Tennessee. They have two children, Mary Morgan (Paul) Ketchel and Chad (Hillary) Blackburn; and two grandsons. Blackburn is a native of Laurel, Mississippi and graduate of Mississippi State University.
