After graduating from Greenwich High School, Hope studied at the Southern Methodist University, majoring in English and playing on the club lacrosse team. She completed her degree in 2010.
Not too much is known about Hope’s relationship history. It had been reported that she dated Corey Lewandowski, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager. She is also reportedly in a relationship with Rob Porter, a former White House staff secretary.
One of Hope’s first jobs was that of a teenage model, appearing for Greenwich magazine, a Ralph Lauren campaign, and several novel covers. She quit modeling and transitioned into public relations, landing a gig with New York-based Zeno Group. In 2012, she was hired by PR firm Hiltzik Strategies. After meeting Ivanka Trump, Hope was hired by The Trump Organization in August 2014, working for Ivanka and assisting in expanding her fashion label. Two months later, she worked directly for Donald Trump.
When Donald was just getting his presidential campaign started, he tapped Hope to be his press secretary. After winning the presidency, Donald appointed Hope to the role of White House Director of Strategic Communications. She was later named the interim White House Communications Director, which became permanent in September 2017.
Hope officially resigned from the White House in March 2018.
We estimate that Hope Hicks’s net worth is $200,000 (2018).
So how much is $200,000 really?
$200,000 is half the salary of the President of the United States. $200,000 is also more than half of the median salary of a White House official.
