Years before Donald Trump’s senior adviser Kellyanne Conway was a cheerleader for the president-elect, she was pumping pom-poms on the sidelines of her high school.
She was a cheerleader at St. Joseph High School in Hammonton, New Jersey in the early 1980s, when she was known was Kellyanne Fitzpatrick.
Bill DiMeo was her first boss at her job hand-packing blueberries at a farm outside Atlantic City.
“She worked for eight summers during high school and college,” he told Inside Edition. “She was a very intensely motivated worker.”
In 1987, she even entered a speed-packing competition and DiMeo remembers her as being very fast. She could pack 300 crates a day.
The competition ended in a tie and she demanded a recount. After the recount, it was determined she was the winner and she was named the World Champion Blueberry Packer.
She also won the New Jersey Blueberry Princess Pageant in 1982 aged 18.
Conway is now a married mother of four.
