In January 1993, Michelle Easton finished twelve years of service in the Administrations of Presidents Reagan and Bush. She received presidential appointments from both Presidents Reagan and Bush with Senate confirmation for her position at the U.S. Department of Education, where she served for seven of the twelve years.
In 1994, Virginia Governor George Allen appointed Michelle to the Virginia State Board of Education, whose members later elected her President of the Board. She led the Board to create nationally acclaimed academic standards, tests, and a rigorous new system of accountability for both students and schools. Prior to her government service, Michelle worked five years for Young Americans for Freedom and two years for National Right to Work, putting herself through law school at night to graduate from American University's Washington School of Law in 1980. She received her BA from Briarcliff College in New York where she briefly taught elementary school before moving to Washington DC in 1973.
Michelle travels widely to promote conservative principles and speaks at scores of conferences, meetings, and campus events. Her television appearances include Firing Line, the Fox News Channel, AM Washington, News Talk Television, National Empowerment Television, Public Television, and C-SPAN. She has been interviewed on hundreds of talk radio programs. Articles she wrote have been published in The Wall Street Journal, The Richmond Times-Dispatch, Human Events, The Washington Times and many other newspapers and publications.
The Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute, founded by Michelle Easton 17 years ago, is putting forward conservative role models who promote traditional family values and reach out to women all over the nation to prepare them for effective conservative leadership.
She has been married for 36 years and is the mother of three sons.
