The powerful evolution of Audrey and Charlotte Pence

Unlike President Donald Trump’s children and family members who are in the media for a variety of reasons, the Pence family is arguably more private. And in case you don’t already know, Vice President Mike Pence has three children — Michael, Charlotte, and Audrey Pence — with his longtime wife, Karen Pence. The VP’s children have been included in their father’s political career since they were young — in fact, they were very much on the campaign trail with the former governor of Indiana during his campaign in 2012. 

“This has always been a family affair for us, from the very first campaign headed out to county fairs, while Karen and I would be shaking hands at the Republican tent,” Pence told 13 WTHR. “The kids would be standing out in front of the tent, handing out flyers and shaking hands.”

But despite cheering their dad on, the trio has not entered the political arena. Michael chose his career in the Marine Corps, the Pence daughters went in different directions. Keep scrolling after the jump to see where they landed. 

Charlotte and Audrey Pence both became writers

Both Charlotte and Audrey Pence found successful careers outside of politics. Charlotte went on to pen the 2018 book, Where You Go Life Lessons from My Father, which is “a touching tribute to the vice president, with a foreword by Mike Pence himself,” as The List noted. In an interview with C-SPAN, the author spoke about her inspiration behind the work, stating, “I think that over the years and growing up my parents saw me as a storyteller from a very young age, so they always encouraged me to not only speak my dreams but also they were kind of speaking them to me,” she said. “They did encourage me to have friends and community that also encouraged me in my dreams, too.” 

Audrey’s career path isn’t too far off from her sister’s. During her time at Fuller Project for International Reporting (a Turkish non-profit news organization), she worked as a journalist alongside journalist Christina Asquith. 

So it looks like Pence kids are creating their own stories, and they seem to pretty successful with their career choices.
