Madeleine Westerhout (born October 8, 1990) is the personal secretary to U.S. President Donald Trump.

Early life and education[edit]

Westerhout was born in Newport Beach, California and spent most of her time growing up in Irvine, California. She studied at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina, receiving a BA degree in political science in 2013.[1][2] After her graduation, she moved to Washington, D.C. and worked as a fitness trainer in the Pure Barre gym of Carrie Rezabek Dorr.[3]


In the 2012 presidential election, Westerhout worked for the campaign of Mitt Romney. In 2013, she worked for candidate John Kuhn in the Republican primary for the special election in South Carolina's first congressional district. Later that year, she interned for Congressman John Campbell. In the summer of 2013, Westerhout began working for the Republican National Committee and the Republican Party Organizing Committee. From January 2015, she worked as an assistant to RNC chief of staff Katie Walsh.[4]

On January 19, 2017, Donald Trump's transition team announced that Westerhout would serve as special assistant and executive assistant to the President.[5] A May 2017 release of White House salary data revealed that Westerhout is paid $95,000 USD for the position.[2]
