People who are able to navigate the twists and turns of serious careers to become celebrities are a pretty interesting set. Such people like Sunlen Serfaty, a Congressional correspondent with CNN whose face has become pretty recognizable beyond just the spheres of her work life is one of such people. She covers a broad range of breaking news stories, national news, and Washington politics. Her profile increased with the extensive work that she did in covering the 2016 United States presidential elections and just as she puts so many issues in the spotlight, we are now set to shine a little light on her life.
Sunlen Serfaty’s Bio (Age, Ethnicity)
Sunlen Serfaty was born with the full name of Sunlen Mari Miller in 1981. She is a Caucasian female born and bred in the United States of America. She had a great background in hard work and ambition from her parents having a mother who juggled the homefront and a job as a marketing communications manager for a service unit of a French transport and power equipment company.
For her college education, she went to the Elliott School of International Affairs at The George Washington University where she graduated from with a B.A in International Affairs. While in college, she had elected to concentrate on Media and Communication. She began her career, therefore, working for local stations honing her skills before finally landing a job where she was a reporter on the weekends for WLJA, an associate of ABC in Washington D.C.
Soon after, she landed the role of a reporter for ABC News and began covering Congress, focusing on the U.S Senate. She also contributed regularly to ABC NewsNow, the broadband entity of the network while regularly filing for ABCNews.com. Sunlen Serfaty’s hard work did not go unnoticed and in two years, by the year 2008, she was employed to be part of ABC’s crew of reporters who were to report developing stories at the White House.
Her new appointment which came just as President Barack Obama was entering the White House enabled her to further make a mark at the network and she served on a variety of its platforms including This Week with George Stephanopoulos, World News with Charles Gibson, and Politics Live.
With her specific experience in reporting for political campaigns and the White House, it was no surprise that the CNN came for her and as expected, she was delighted to say yes. At CNN she worked with CNN Newsource in their Washington Bureau before entering a general assignment crew for CNN in Washington D.C.
For her excellent reports and the level of dedication she has displayed towards her work, Sunlen Serfaty has won an Emmy for journalism; and her good work in 2016 as she reported on one of the most hotly contested presidential elections in U.S history showed why. Her reports were made from all over the country as she went along with the GOP nominees during the Republican primaries.
The details on Sunlen Serfarty’s net worth are closed to the public. It is, however, evident that she has been successful in the career that she chose and has become one of America’s most respected journalists. Her net worth at whatever level it may be would see healthy contributions from her work as a White House correspondent and her annual salary is estimated at $126 thousand dollars.
Sunlen Serfaty’s Husband
Sunlen Serfaty dated her husband for quite a long time before she married him at Rose Park, Washington on the 3rd of August 2013. Her husband, Alexis Serfaty, is a policy adviser in Washington for the Department of Transportation. The two had been introduced by a mutual friend and they hit it off and began communicating regularly, which led to a date at Firefly in Dupont.
The date was evidently successful as they went on a second and then a third and they were soon inseparable, finally taking the plunge to marriage. In 2017, their union was blessed with a daughter whom they named Roosevelt Jolie Serfaty. Their daughter’s name Roosevelt has some significance to their relationship as it stands for ‘rose eld’ and they shared a lot of sweet memories in Rose Park, Washington D.C.
Sunlen Serfaty stands at a height of 6 ft or 182 cm. That is reasonably tall, not that it matters because although looks may have a part to play in the profession of journalism it is surely little compared to the hard work and dedication that Sunlen Serfaty has displayed through the course of her career.
