Speech Topic: Correlations between the current administration and Marxist Dictators of Latin America.
Ana Puig will be on the same stage as Sarah Palin at the First National Tea Party Convention in Nashville.
While Sarah Palin might be the primary person conservatives are invading Nashville to see, a Doylestown woman will be sharing the same stage at the First National Tea Party Convention.
Ana Puig, who in the last several months has become one of Bucks Countys rising voices against a government takeover of health care, is Saturday's lead speaker, prior to Palin's keynote address.
I get so nervous every time I take that stage, she said this week before flying to Tennessee. It's petrifying.
She must live in fear. Puig has become a frequent invited guest at political events, including Tea Party gatherings and health care forums.
It began April 18 at the Kitchen Table Patriots Tea Party at Washington Crossing, an event she thought was a one-time deal.
Instead, it has evolved. She is now on the executive board of the Thomas Jefferson Club and co-chairwoman of the Kitchen Table Patriots, a nonprofit, nonpartisan political action committee.
The stay-at-home mother of four young children said the growth of the Tea Party groups she's worked with has led to a full-time job.
She's in high demand. She's been a guest on CNN, FOX news and NPR radio. It is not surprising. Puig's story is a unique one.
She was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, moved to the United States at age 14, and has lived in England. She speaks English, Spanish and Portuguese.
Her background, she says, is a natural for the title of Saturday's speech: Correlations between the current administration and Marxist Dictators of Latin America.
Ana, born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, moved to the United States with her family at age 14. She is graduate of Baylor University where she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Marketing and International Business in 1994. As a Senior Marketing Analyst, she worked for AMR Corporation before becoming a stay-at-home mom. Not only has she traveled extensively but also has lived in England for three years. Ana's passions include politics, writing and languages.
Since 2009, Ana has become very involved with several grassroots organizations. As a leader in the Tea Party Movement and Co-Chair of the Kitchen Table Patriots (KTP), she works on a daily basis coordinating with these groups across the country.
KTP is a non-profit, non-partisan political action organization. Through her innovative accomplishments, Ana has brought KTP to the forefront in the media. She has spoken many times at political events including FreedomWorks 0/12 an Eagle Forum Conferences throughout the country about her own experiences and their correlation to what is happening in the United States today. Through her activism, she has taken bus loads of activists to both Harrisburg and Washington, DC, has been a panelist in various healthcare townhalls and has infiltrated progressive townhalls as well.
In January 2010, KTP organized a congressional candidates's forum where Ana lobbied for an open primary in Bucks County. She also ran and won as Precinct Committee Woman in may 2010. During the mid-term election of 2010, Ana partnered with American Majority Action (AMA) and ran a successful "get out the vote" from Liberty Headquarters in Doylestown, PA.
Ana is a frequent guest on the Neil Cavuto Show and has authored numerous op-ed pieces. She has been quoted on Fox News.com, in the press, and in blogs and was featured in the Hit piece, the "Rise of The New Right" by Chris Matthews, on MSNBC. Ana now resides in the greater Philadelphia area with her husband and four children.
