Chelsea Clinton will introduce her mother, democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on the final night of the Democratic National Convention.
The former first daughter is expected to give a speech that reflects on being raised in the public eye, and the values her mother instilled in her.
It will come a week after her friend, Ivanka Trump, introduced her father at the Republican National Convention.
Clinton, 35, serves Vice Chair of the recently renamed “Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation,” where she took a lead role in the final years of her mother’s time at the State Department.
Clinton has a net worth estimated at $15 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Here’s what you need to know about her net worth, salary and job:
1. She Has a Net Worth Estimated at $15 Million
Chelsea has a net worth estimated at $15 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Her husband, Marc Mezvinsky is an investment banker who has a net worth that is also estimated at $15 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Mezvinsky earned his net worth as an investment banker at the New York-based firm Goldman Sachs and while working at the New York hedge fund company, 3G Capital.
2. She Earned an Annual Salary of $600,000 at NBC News
Chelsea Clinton earned an annual salary of $600,000 at NBC News, according to Politico. Clinton was hired as a special correspondent in 2011 to work on projects for “NBC Nightly News” and Brian Williams’ newsmagazine, “Rock Center.” Her reports were part of NBC News’s “Making a Difference” series.
NBC News faced criticism following the hire, due to the the high-paying position and Clinton’s lack of journalism experience. The company faced similar criticism in 2009, when they hired Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of former President George W. Bush, as a special correspondent for the “Today” show.
Her $600,000 contract came up for renewal in 2014, according to Politico, but the network decided to place her on a month-to-month arrangement in case her mother declared for the 2016 presidential race.
Clinton announced in August 2014, a month before the birth of her first child, that she would be leaving NBC to focus on philanthropic work at the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
“It is frustrating, because who wants to grow up and follow their parents? I’ve tried really hard to care about things that were very different from my parents … it’s a funny thing to realize I feel called to this work, both as a daughter and also as someone who believes I have contributions to make,” the former first daughter told the New York Daily News.
The New York Times reports “she remains on the board of IAC/InterActiveCorp, a digital media company overseen by Barry Diller, a longtime Clinton supporter.” In 2011, that position paid an annual retainer of $50,000 and a $250,000 grant of restricted stock, according to the New York Times.
3. Her Wedding Cost an Estimated $3 Million
Chelsea wed Marc Mezvinsky in a lavish 2010 ceremony estimated to have cost $3 million. Estimates put the total between $2 million and $5 million. The hefty price tag included $750,000 for catering, $250,000 for flowers, and another $250,000 for the rehearsal dinner, according to an ABC News report.
They wed at an outdoor ceremony at the Astor Courts estate on Saturday, July 31, 2010 in Rhinebeck, N.Y.
4. She and Her Husband Own a $10 Million Apartment
Chelsea and Marc purchased a $10.5 million apartment overlooking Madison Square Park in 2013, according to the Daily Mail.
The 5,000-square-foot apartment has four-bedrooms and five-and-half baths. It is located in The Whitman at 21 E. 26th St., which is where Jennifer Lopez also reportedly owns.
Their home features 10-foot ceilings, oak floors, Italian marble bathrooms and elevator access, according to Vanity Fair.
5. Her Speaking Fee Is $65,000
Chelsea Clinton’s speaking fee may be more than the average American annual income, however it pales in comparison to her mother’s.
According to a report from The Washington Post, the University of Missouri-Kansas City balked at a $275,000 quote for a one-time speaking fee from Hillary Clinton’s office in 2014.
The Post states the university opted for the former first daughter instead. They paid Chelsea $65,000 for a brief appearance in February 2014, according to the article. She spoke for 10 minutes, participated in a 20-minute Q&A session and posed for pictures.
A spokesman for Chelsea Clinton told the Post that she directed her speaking fee toward the Clinton Foundation.
