A report in the New York Daily News while talking in detail about her role in Trump’s visit says, “Heather Rinkus, who’s married to a two-time convicted felon, is working with the President’s logistics team while Mar-a-Lago closes for the summer. She’s in town for Trump’s G-7 summit and has been issued a government email and cell phone…Rinkus, who has no government experience, has worked at the “Winter White House” for nearly two years. Previously she worked at a consulting firm where she dealt with small businesses, according to her LinkedIn profile.
The woman’s LinkedIn page throws some light on who actually she is and what she has been doing in the past year. Her Linkedin page says she began working as a guest reception manager at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s luxury resort in Florida, in July 2015. She joined not long after Trump began running for president. BuzzFeed News report that actually brought the story into limelight says Rinkus is such a familiar figure to those who go to Mar-a-Lago that she is sometimes called the club’s “house mother.” If reports are to be believed she may take over as the managing director of Mar-a-Lago sometime down the line. Rinkus also works as a consultant for HLR Consulting LLC, according to her LinkedIn page.
Trump has always rewarded his loyal supporters be in politics or business. Earlier she worked for around seven years at Amway Hotel Corporation. Not many people know that Amway Hotel Corporation is a subsidiary of Alticor, which is owned by Betsy DeVos, Donald Trump’s secretary of education.
The Buzzfeed News report says, “The guest manager position at the exclusive club was tough to get, but Ari Rinkus, according to three sources, said his wife had a leg up because she had worked for the DeVos family company”. Heather Rinkusis married to Ari Rinkus, a twice-convicted felon. Ari’s real name is Anthony Donald Rinkus, and he in 2006 pleaded guilty to conducting a car-theft ring. He also pleaded guilty to felony wire fraud and was ordered to spend three years in prison.
