Profile
Former Governor Sarah Palin

A history-making woman leader, GOP kingmaker and beloved “Mama Grizzly,” Governor Sarah Palin’s maverick personality, spot-on political instincts and deep connection with “the silent majority” of American voters have made her one of the most influential women in conservative politics. As one of the earliest endorsers of President Trump, Governor Palin injected vital support and game-changing momentum at a critical juncture in the battle for the Republican nomination.
Today, Governor Palin continues to fight for the millions of Americans that are often overlooked by Washington and the mainstream media. As an unforgettable keynote speaker, she shares her own life journey of overcoming challenges by putting family first and finding strength in her deep Christian faith. Drawing full houses and standing-room-only crowds, Sarah Palin calls upon all Americans—of all political persuasions and beliefs—to get motivated, get involved and join together to build a brighter future.

Known for her meteoric rise from first female (and youngest) Governor of Alaska to first woman on the GOP presidential ticket, Governor Palin has captured hearts and minds around the world with her outspoken honesty, fearless principles and passionate personality. Recognized as one of TIME’s “100 Most Influential People” and Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Women,” Governor Palin is also one of only 21 women on Smithsonian’s “100 Most Significant Americans of All Time” list. In election after election, her endorsement and the support of her political action committee, SarahPAC, are considered the gold standard for conservative candidates. A devoted mother and grandmother, Governor Palin has shared her family’s personal experiences raising a Down syndrome child and having a son deployed overseas to advocate for children with special needs, military families and those who serve. Governor Palin is the author of four books. Her memoir, Going Rogue: An American Life and inspirational book, America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag were immediate bestsellers. Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas called for bringing back the freedom to express the Christian values of the season. Her most recent book, Sweet Freedom: A Devotional applies biblical principles to contemporary issues. An avid sportswoman, known as “First Lady of the Outdoors,” Governor Palin hosted Amazing America with Sarah Palin on the Sportsman Channel and starred in Sarah Palin’s Alaska on TLC. She was also a Fox News political commentator. Governor Palin’s long record of achievement in public office includes two terms as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, two terms on the Wasilla City Council and Chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, where she shaped energy policy. While mayor of Wasilla, she was elected President of Alaska’s Conference of Mayors. Governor Palin graduated from the School of Journalism at the University of Idaho and worked as a sportscaster in Anchorage before entering public service.

Speaking from the heart and the heartland, Sarah Palin’s rousing, refreshingly candid keynotes are filled with the homespun stories of everyday Americans, history-making political players and the challenges that she has faced as a leader, mother, wife, public servant and political candidate. With honesty, humor and her signature zingers, Governor Palin celebrates traditional, small town conservative values that are grounded in faith, family and patriotism. Audiences leave motivated, informed, entertained and uplifted by one of the most notable American women of our time.
