Senator Elizabeth Warren
Born in Oklahoma City, Elizabeth Warren became the first member of her family to graduate from college, eventually earning her law degree from Rutgers University. Warren was a law professor for more than 30 years, including nearly 20 years as the Leo Gottlieb Professor of Law at Harvard Law School.
In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, Warren served as Chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). She is widely credited for the original thinking, political courage, and relentless persistence that led to the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. In November 2012, Warren was elected U.S. Senator for Massachusetts.
