Dana Perino was raised in Denver, Colorado. She was a student of Ponderosa High School. Later, she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in mass communications, politics and Spanish from Colorado State University-Pueblo, and then a Master’s degree in public affairs reporting from the University of Illinois Springfield. After graduation Dana worked as a daily reporter for Illinois Capitol, then she took the position of a staff assistant for Representative Scott McInnis of Colorado followed by the position of press secretary for Rep. Dan Schaefer, the chairman of the House Commerce Sub-committee on Energy and Power. Afterwards, following a brief sojourn in the UK with her husband, Perino spent more than three years working in the field of high-tech public affairs. Of course all these positions contributed to Dana’s net worth growth.

Subsequently, she was employed as the associate director of communications for the White House, and when she proved to be totally professional and competent, she was chosen as Deputy Press Secretary by Scott McClellan. Perino was the second female holding this position, the first was Dee Dee Myers who worked for the Clinton Administration. She was the 27th White House Press Secretary, a position Dana held for two years (2005 – 2007). In 2007, she received a promotion to the rank of Assistant to the President, and held this position until 2009. Again, Dana’s net worth improved considerably from her salaries in these positions.

When the Bush administration ended, Dana Perino moved on to work on television as a political commentator on Fox News. In addition to this, the talk show “The Five” (2011 – present) is co-hosted by Perino alongside other presenters Bob Beckel, Eric Bolling, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams. Dana also works for the largest trade book publisher in the world – Random House – as a book publishing executive. All the above mentioned positions have added much to the net worth of Dana Perino, as well as provided lots of knowledge and varied experience, and made her recognisable and respected.

In jer personal life, in 1998 Dana Perino married Peter McMahon, the third marriage for him. They do not have any children together, but McMahon has children from his previous marriages, and now he is a grandfather. Dana is a member of Republican political party.
