Kellyanne Conway was the campaign manager for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and served as a counselor to the president until August 2020. 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.
