Elizabeth Warren net worth

By Spear's

American academic and politician, Elizabeth Warren has an estimated net worth of $7.85 million.

born June 22, 1949, Warren attended Northwest Classen High School and won the title of “Oklahoma’s top high school debater” while competing with debate teams from high schools throughout the state. She also won a debate scholarship to George Washington University at the age of 16.

How did Warren make her millions?

Warren is a member of the Democratic Party and is the senior United States Senator from Massachusetts. She was formerly a professor of law, and taught at the University of Texas School of Law, the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and most recently at Harvard Law School. A prominent scholar specializing in bankruptcy law, Warren was among the most cited in the field of commercial law before starting her political career.

Warren is an active consumer protection advocate whose scholarship led to the conception and establishment of the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She has written a number of academic and popular works, and is a frequent subject of media interviews regarding the American economy and personal finance. Following the 2008 financial crisis, Warren served as chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel created to oversee the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). She later served as Assistant to the President and Special Advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau under President Barack Obama. During the late 2000s, she was recognized by publications such as the National Law Journal and Time 100 as an increasingly influential public policy figure.

In September 2011, Warren announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate, challenging Republican incumbent Scott Brown. She won the general election on November 6, 2012, becoming the first female Senator from Massachusetts. She was assigned to the Senate Special Committee on Aging; the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee; and the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee.

Warren is a leading figure in the Democratic Party and is popular among American progressives. Although she repeatedly stated that she was not running for president, Warren was frequently mentioned by political pundits as a strong potential candidate in the 2016 presidential elections.
In early June 2016, Warren endorsed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
