Join the Parkinson Association at our signature event A Step Forward Overcoming Obstacles on Thursday, March 5, 2019 at the Naples Beach Ritz Carlton.
This year we are welcoming former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as our keynote speaker.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders served as White House Press Secretary for President Donald J. Trump from 2017 to 2019. A trusted confidante of the President, Sarah advised him on everything from press and communications strategy to personnel and policy. For two and a half years, Sarah was at the President's side, battling with the media, working with lawmakers and CEOs, and staffing the President on every foreign trip, including dozens of meetings with foreign leaders. Sarah is only the third woman and the very first mom to ever hold the job of White House Press Secretary.
Upon her departure from the administration, President Trump described Sarah as "irreplaceable," a "warrior" and "very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job."
An early supporter of President Trump, Sarah joined the Trump campaign as a senior advisor in February 2016 during the Republican primary.
Sarah has previously worked in leadership roles for U.S. Senators, Governors, and presidential campaigns. In Arkansas, Sarah was a senior advisor to Senator Tom Cotton in 2014, was campaign manager for Senator John Boozman in 2010, and in 2007 and 2008, Sarah helped lead her father, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, to victory in the Iowa Caucuses and seven other states as his National Political Director.
Sarah has been named one of TIME Magazine's "40 under 40" and is recognized as one of the best political operatives of her generation.
Sarah has also advised major Fortune 500 companies and non-profits, including serving as campaign manager of the ONE campaign, a global non-profit founded by U2's Bono to take action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.
She is married to her husband, Bryan, and they have three children, Scarlett, Huck, and George, and live in Little Rock, Arkansas.
