Who is Adrienne Elrod?

Adrienne was born in Siloam Springs, Arkansas USA, on 20 June 1976 under the zodiac sign of Gemini; she holds American nationality and is of Caucasian ethnicity. She is noted as an experienced political strategist and public administrator, while she has also worked as campaign manager for several politicians.

Early life and education

Adrienne spent most of her childhood in Arkansas with her parents – her mother is an attorney while her father is Jon Elrod, a famous American attorney and politician, and her grandfather was a State Senator for almost 30 years. She has never talked about siblings, and is said to be an only child. Since both of her parents were into politics, they influenced her to choose it as her career as well – Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton were family friends and were an additional motivation for Adrienne to get into politics – Hillary and her mom first met when both of them were working in Arkansas as attorneys. Adrienne said how she became interested in politics at the age of 16 when Bill Clinton won the presidential election – she immediately knew that she wanted to work for him. She attended Siloam High School in Arkansas, and after she matriculated in 1994, she enrolled at Texas Christian University and graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Journalism in 1998.

Adrienne’s brother Jon Elrod

Jon was born in Indianapolis, Indiana USA on 3 May 1977 and is known for being an attorney and a politician. He received his magna cum laude bachelor’s degree from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio – he did his major in History and his minor in Performance Studies while he was also interested in sports as he was the president of the university’s rugby football club. He got his Juris Doctor degree cum laude from Indiana University School of Law in 2002.

Elrod’s most noticeable achievement was when he became Indiana State House Representative for District 97 in 2006 after he beat Ed Mahern by around 10 votes. He went on to become a candidate for United States House of Representatives for the 7th Congressional District of Indiana in the end of 2007. Even though he won the Republican primary, he eventually lost the elections by 11% of votes.

In 2008, Elrod lost his place of Indiana State House Representative for District 97 to Democrat Mary Ann Sullivan who defeated him as she had 55% of votes while Elrod had 45%.

Adrienne Elrod


Adrienne began her career as soon as she graduated, and immediately landed a big job as she started working at the White House as an Executive Assistant. She spent two years there and resigned in 2000 at the end of Bill Clinton’s presidency – it is unknown what had she been doing for the next three years, but in October 2003 she started working for the US Congressman Mike Ross as his Communications Director, taking a short break from working for Mike to work on Congressman Nick Lampson’s re-election campaign as his Campaign Manager.

Adrienne has switched between several jobs during her career – in May 2006, she started working as the Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, until she became Deputy Chief of Staff of the Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez in January 2007 – she was in charge of managing communications agendas for a senior member of the Armed Services and Homeland Security Committees.

From 2013, Adrienne worked as the Chief of Staff of the US House of Representatives – she also helped Hillary Clinton with her presidential campaign, serving as her Director of Strategic Communications and Surrogate for her campaign entitled Hillary for America, from April 2015 to November 2016.

Adrienne founded her own communication company in 2016 called “Elrod Strategies”, and you can often see her on CNN, MSNBC and FOX News as they frequently host her to talk about politics.

The moment she is most proud of

Adrienne has said during her interview with BOLD that the most enjoyable memory from her career was when she saw Hillary Clinton walking on stage after becoming the first female presidential nominee of a major political party. They knew how hard all of them worked to get there, and they all felt proud of themselves.

Elrod Strategies

Adrienne formed her company “Elrod Strategies” after the 2016 presidential election, only because she did not know what to do next in her career, except that she wanted to work on things which she believes in, and to help people who might be under attack by Trump’s new policies. This is why her company is specialized in influencer engagement for a variety of clients -including non-profit clients and progressive organizations – the company takes-on important strategic campaigns and helps its clients get recognized easier through media and partnerships. The company also works with individual celebrities or activists who are interested in engaging on various policy issues.

The current goal of the company is to grow by working on projects focused on progressive values, and she advises everyone who wants to start their own business to just do it because working for yourself is very rewarding.

Personal life

Adrienne is one of those people who like to keep their personal life to themselves. There is nothing known about her past affairs or if she is seeing someone at the moment – there were some rumors and speculations about Adrienne being married after she tweeted something about it on her Twitter account – she compared a hopeless marital rough patch with her loyalty to being a hog fan, however, she never talked about this afterwards and didn’t respond to comments in which people asked her if she was married. If a woman who is as famous was married, the public would probably know about it – it is very likely that Adrienne has been so busy with her career that she hasn’t have time to even think about romance, and therefore, Adrienne is likely to be single, she doesn’t have any kids, and is currently living in Washington D.C.
