Kate Obenshain      

Motivational Speaker, Author, Defender of Conservative Principals & Regular Guest on "Fox News"

A popular national motivational speaker, author, blogger, and regular guest on Fox News, CNBC and radio shows, Kate Obenshain is fearless champion of expanded liberty. She inspires audiences with her passionate, experienced insights, encouraging them to dig deep to become more engaged while always staying true to their integrity and principles, even in a world that demands they abandon them.

Obenshain is the author of "Divider in Chief: The Fraud of Hope and Change" — a book that has garnered national praise for its searing, systematic indictment of the Obama administration's tactics. Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, David Limbaugh, Congressman Allen West and other widely respected conservatives have lauded the book. Obenshain has been executive producer for two movies, both for Young America's Foundation. The first, "Still Point in a Turning World," was developed in honor of President Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday. "The Conservatives," featuring prominent conservatives such as Michelle Malkin, Mark Levin and Jonah Goldberg, provides an introduction to conservatism to young adults.

From 2008 to 2012, Obenshain championed her conservative convictions as vice president of Young America’s Foundation, a group that inspires emerging young leaders at the Reagan Ranch, Reagan Ranch Center, and on college campuses across the country. In 2003, she founded the Jennifer Byler Institute, a leadership training program for women in Virginia. Obenshain garnered national attention as the first woman chairman of the Virginia GOP. While she was chair, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution identified her as a rising star in national politics.

She served as Virginia Senator George Allen's chief of staff and as his chief education and health policy adviser while he was governor. From 1995 to 2000, she advanced budgetary reform and programmatic accountability as an appointee of Governors Allen and Gilmore on the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia.

Currently, in addition to her speaking, writing and media work, Obenshain advises political candidates as well as businesses and organizations on policy development, messaging and media. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute and on the Advisory Board for the Steamboat Institute.

In 2005, Obenshain received Young America’s Foundation’s prestigious Torch of Freedom Award. She has also served on Young America's Foundation's board of directors. Obenshain has also received the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute’s Conservative Leadership Award and has been featured in six of the Institute’s popular annual calendars.
