McClelland earned her bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Pittsburgh. In 2002, she began a private practice specializing in addiction prevention and treatment. McClelland received her M.S. in counseling psychology from Chatham University in 2003. She then worked as the practice improvement collaborative manager for the Institute of Research Education and Training in Addiction (IRETA). McClelland developed Arche Wellness, an orthomolecular addiction treatment program, in 2006.
McClelland's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "As a small business owner, entrepreneur, and the daughter of a nurse and a utility lineman, I know well the struggles we face and the pride we feel in a hard day’s work that provides for our families. I also know that the greatest weapon in our country’s economic arsenal is the purchasing power of a vibrant and growing American middle class."
- Women's Issues
- Excerpt: "When women are paid 70 cents for every dollar a man makes, that’s not just a women’s issue - it’s an economic issue. When restrictions are placed on women’s health care and yet they pay more for coverage, it’s not just a women’s issue - it’s a civil rights issue. And when a woman faces an impossible choice between her job and her child because her workplace doesn’t offer maternity leave, it’s not just a women’s issue - it’s a family values issue."
- Excerpt: "I’ve spent my career in the healthcare industry, so I know firsthand the problems we face. An inefficient and outdated system that leads to errors, coupled with a lack of preventative care, drive up costs and make our system too expensive."
- Excerpt: "We need to ensure that today’s veterans receive the training and resources as heroes they deserve - including proper physical and mental health care."
- Excerpt: "When Pittsburgh Plate and Glass hired union members like my great-grandfather, it was because they knew they were the best in the world at what they did. We need to make sure our kids have the same opportunities in a new economy."
- Excerpt: "When we built our country’s network of bridges, roads and highways, we constructed the backbone necessary to support for the world’s strongest economy. Now, those same bridges and roadways are filled with potholes and becoming unsafe. Rebuilding our transit infrastructure is necessary to keep our economy running smoothly and safely."
