Life after Obama Administration
I never tired of hearing about the myriad tasks Valerie Jarrett took on during her tenure in the Obama Administration–she set a high bar and always reached it. I remain inspired by her footprint as it continually expands. She will soon address an audience at The Commonwealth Club San Francisco to share aspects of life before and beyond Capitol Hill–
Valerie Jarrett understands the White House in a way few ever could. After hiring a young Michelle Robinson decades ago, Jarrett has remained a close friend of the Obamas and served as Senior Advisor to the President for all eight years of the Obama presidency.
The New York Times called Jarrett the “ultimate Obama insider” as she shares her unique perspective into the inner workings of the White House and the inspiring story of how she got there.
The Former Senior Adviser to President Barack Obama is author of the new book, Finding My Voice: My Journey to the West Wing and the Path Forward.
Despite the almost constant streams of media reporting on the White House, very few people know what really goes on in the West Wing. Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to the president in the Obama administration, is one of those people. From the day she interviewed a young Michelle Robinson in July 1991 to the night of January 20, 2017, when the first family departed the White House, Jarrett has been a trusted confidante and a close friend of the Obama family.
In her new book, Jarrett shares her story of growing up with American parents in the town of Shiraz, Iran, living in Chicago (IL) during the civil rights movement and ultimately finding her voice in public service.
