Kellyanne Conway was born in Camden, New Jersey on January 20, 1967. She is the daughter of Diane Fitzpatrick, a bank clerk, and Mr. Fitzpatrick, the owner of a small trucking company. Her parents divorced when she was just three years old and was raised by her mother, grandmother and aunts. She grew up in a Catholic household.
Kellyanne studied at St. Joseph High School. Upon graduation, Kellyanne earned a Bachelor of Arts magna cum laude in political science at Trinity College. In 1992, she would earn a J.D. with honors from the George Washington University Law School, which helped her serve as judicial clerk for Judge Richard A. Levie of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.
She has been married to George T. Conway III, a litigation partner, since 2001. They have four children, including George and Conway. The family resided in Alpine, New Jersey but then relocated to Washington, D.C. for her position in the White House.
Rather than continuing on in the legal profession, Kellyanne became a pollster and joined the Wirthlin Group, a Republican polling company, and later the Luntz Research Companies. Kellyanne would eventually found The Polling Company in 1995, which was an instant success as she had a wide array of clients, including American Express, Major League Baseball (MLB), ABC News, Hasbro and Vaseline.
She would enter politics by working with numerous prominent Republican officials, such as former Senator Fred Thompson, former United States Vice President Dan Quayle, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and former Congressman Mike Pence. Kellyanne also appeared on various television and radio networks as a political pundit.
In 2016, Kellyanne endorsed Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz for president. She headed Keep the Promise I, a political action committee (PAC) that promoted the Texas Senator. After Ted suspended his campaign, Donald Trump announced that Kellyanne would serve as senior advisor to his presidential campaign. She would eventually serve as his campaign manager, in which she made history for being the first woman to successful chair a presidential campaign.
Kellyanne now serves as a Counselor to the President.
In 2005, Kellyanne co-authored a book entitled “What Women Really Want: How American Women Are Quietly Erasing Political, Racial, Class, and Religious Lines to Change the Way We Live.”
Describing herself as a Generation X Conservative, some of her positions include supporting immigration reform and opposing abortion.
We estimate that Kellyanne Conway’s net worth is $4 million (2016).
So how much is $4 million really?
$4 million can pay for a fraction of an entire U.S. presidential campaign – the last several election cycles have seen candidates spending about $1 billion. $4 million can also help you establish a polling outfit.
