Name: Kristen Jarvis | Special Assistant to Michelle Obama
Michelle Obama is arguably one of the most thorough first ladies this country has ever witnessed, but even she needs someone to dot her i’s and cross her t’s. Serving as special assistant for scheduling and traveling aide for the first lady, Kristen Jarvis is the woman that makes sure all the small details are in place. One of the most popular task Kristen has performed, was creating a list of black hair salons for the first lady in different states, clearly the first list of its sort to ever be created for a first lady.
Kristen started off as a staffer for former majority leader Tom Daschle. Down the line she was introduced to Barack Obama by Daschle, and went on to become scheduler in Nevada and on the press advance team for the Obama campaign. This is what led her to become the special assistant to Mrs. Obama. Being by Michelle’s side while she travels the world making a difference, Kristen gets a front row seat to the lives of one of the most inspirational first families in history. Pretty cool!
What we can expect in the future is Kristen continuing to work her way up in our political system and help lead this country back in the direction we so hope to go. Maybe one day she will run for President; she already has two of the greatest mentors a girl could ever ask for.
