Michelle Obama Net Worth: Michelle Obama is an American lawyer, writer and First Lady of the United States who has a net worth of $11.8 million. Michelle Obama was born January 17, 1964 in Chicago, Illinois. She is best known as the wife of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. She attended Princeton University, graduating cum laude in 1985, and went on to earn a law degree from Harvard Law School in 1988. Following law school, she worked at a Chicago law firm where she met her husband, (President) Barack Obama. Initially, she refused to date Barack, believing that their work relationship would make the romance improper. Eventually, she relented and the couple soon fell in love, marrying on October 3, 1992. Michelle soon left her job to launch a career in public service, serving as an assistant to Mayor Daley and then as the assistant commissioner of planning and development for the City of Chicago. In 1993, she became executive director for the Chicago office of Public Allies, a nonprofit leadership-training program which helped young adults develop skills for future careers in the public sector. Michelle joined the University of Chicago in 1996 as Associate Dean of Student Services, developing the university's first community service program. She then worked for the University of Chicago Hospitals beginning in 2002 as Executive Director of Community Relations and External Affairs. In May 2005, she was appointed Vice President for Community and External Affairs at the University of Chicago Medical Center, where she continued to work part-time until shortly before her husband's inauguration as President of the United States in 2009. She serves as a board member for the prestigious Chicago Council on Global Affairs. After her husband was elected President, she put her own career ambitions on the back burner to become The First Lady.
