Every man in the world, regardless of social status and race, dreams that the woman they end up exchanging marital vows with is one that is supportive of them. American politician Jeff Flake looks to have hit the jackpot when it comes to this, as his wife, Cheryl Flake, might just go down in history as the most supportive wife ever to a career politician.
The pair have been together ever since their days in the university. After leaving school, she went on to put away all her career ambitions to stand by her husband as he rose to become a United States Senator while she took care of business back home. Read on to find out other facts about her.
Cheryl Flake Biography/Wiki
Being the wife of a prominent United States politician, Cheryl Flake has spent a huge chunk of her adult life in the public eye. But despite this, specific details about her parents, early life, siblings, and education are not known to the public. What is, however, known is that she was previously known as Cheryl Lanae before her marriage and that she was born somewhere in the state of Arizona on April 15, 1965.
After having completed her early and high school education at unnamed schools, Flake enrolled at Brigham Young University, a religious college owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was here that she first met and began dating her future husband Jeff Flake. While it is not clear what she studied in college, she graduated from the institution in 1985.
Cheryl Flake is not known to have held any jobs as most publications describe her as a homemaker. Due to this, her net worth has been unable to be determined. Her husband, on the other hand, is said to have a net worth of around $500,000. He made a significant portion of his net worth from his investment in real estate.
One of Flake’s major assets in real estate is a 4,625-square foot home in Mesa, Arizona.
