His father ran a chicken hatchery on Swamp Road in Doylestown and was president of the Buckingham Township Civic Association, and his mother was president of Planned Parenthood of Bucks County. Scott attended and graduated from Haverford College and Villanova Law School.After clerking for a federal judge from Bucks County, Scott went to Washington, D.C., to make a difference. He worked as counsel to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, under Pennsylvania’s own Senator Arlen Specter. He served as the general counsel for the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs and also served as chief foreign policy and defense adviser to the committee chairman. Scott then worked for nonprofit public-interest organizations fighting to improve the criminal justice system, to make it more effective and fair, and to waste less taxpayer money. For the past 15 years, Scott and his wife, Christy, have run the Wallace Global Fund, a charitable foundation working to empower women, fight climate change, and create clean-energy jobs for the future.
