Chelsea Victoria Clinton

Chelsea Victoria Clinton (born February 27, 1980) is the only child of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Chelsea Clinton was a special correspondent for NBC News (2011–14) and now works with the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative. Since 2011, she has taken on a prominent role at the Clinton Foundation, and has a seat on its board.

Clinton was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, during her father’s first term as governor. She attended public schools there until he was elected President and the family moved to Washington, D.C., where she began attending the private Sidwell Friends School. She received an undergraduate degree at Stanford University and later earned master’s degrees from Oxford University and Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and a Doctor of Philosophy in international relations from the University of Oxford in 2014.

Clinton has worked for McKinsey & Company, Avenue Capital Group, and New York University and serves on several boards, including those of the School of American Ballet, Clinton Foundation, Clinton Global Initiative, Common Sense Media, Weill Cornell Medical College and IAC/InterActiveCorp.

In 2007 and 2008, Clinton campaigned extensively on American college campuses for her mother’s unsuccessful Democratic presidential nomination bid, introducing her at the August 2008 Democratic National Convention. Clinton married investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in 2010. They have a daughter and are expecting their second child in 2016.

On July 31, 2010, Clinton and investment banker Marc Mezvinsky (born December 15, 1977) were married in an interfaith ceremony in Rhinebeck, New York. Mezvinsky is the son of former members of Congress Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky and Edward Mezvinsky, and was raised in the Conservative Jewish tradition. The senior Clintons and Mezvinskys were friends in the 1990s and their children met on a Renaissance Weekend retreat in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. They first were reported to be a couple in 2005, and became engaged over Thanksgiving weekend in 2009.

Following their wedding, the couple lived for three years in New York City’s Gramercy Park neighborhood, later purchasing a condominium in the Flatiron District of Manhattan for $10.5 million. Clinton and Mezvinsky have a daughter, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky (born 2014), and are expecting their second child in mid 2016.
