Kellyanne Conway was the campaign manager for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and is currently serving as a counselor to the president. She is the first woman to run a successful presidential campaign.
Conway was born on January 20, 1967 in Camden, New Jersey. She graduated with a bachelor's in political science from Trinity College in Washington, D.C., and a Juris Doctor from George Washington University Law School. She practiced law for a time, but she was most successful in her career as a polling consultant, even launching her own polling company, WomanTrend.
Conway’s reputation as a successful polling consultant led her to run a group of super PACs in support of Ted Cruz in the 2016 presidential race. When he dropped out, she was asked to be the campaign manager for Donald Trump to help his campaign reach female voters. Now that he is president, she serves as counselor to the President.
Conway has been the center of many controversy in the short time Trump has been president and before. She’s had some controversial interviews, she’s been banned from multiple talk shows for her lack of credibility, and she’s termed the phrase “alternative facts” from an interview defending Trump’s description of the crowd at his inauguration.
