Ashley Biden 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
In 2002, Biden was arrested in Chicago and charged with obstructing a police officer. She was leaving a club on Division Street when a friend, John Kaulentis, threw a soft-drink can at a police officer who had told him to stay behind a barricade set up to keep club patrons off of the street. The situation escalated and resulted in another friend, Kelly Donohoe, hitting an officer. As Kaulentis and Donohoe were being taken in to custody, Biden allegedly “verbally intimidated” an officer and was arrested. All three were released on their own recognizance. In 2009, a friend of Biden attempted to sell a video, reportedly of Biden using cocaine at a party, to the New York Post for $2 million. Negotiations brought the price down to $400,000 but the newspaper declined the offer, choosing instead to publish a story about the alleged video. After the New York Post published the story, it was revealed that Biden had previously been arrested in 1999 in New Orleans for possession of marijuana, but the charges were dropped and she was released. In 2010, she began dating Howard Krein, a plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist, after being introduced by her brother, Beau. Krein is a graduate of Rutgers University and Thomas Jefferson Medical College. They married in a Catholic-Jewish interfaith ceremony at St. Joseph’s on the Brandywine in 2012. Her husband, who is Jewish, works at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia and is an assistant professor of facial, plastic, and reconstructive surgery. Biden is a practicing Catholic. She joined her husband, father, and brother in a private audience with Pope Francis in the Vatican in 2016. In August 2020, Biden spoke at the 2020 Democratic National Convention before her father accepted the 2020 Democratic Presidential Nomination. On August 6, Biden hosted an organizing event for Wisconsin Women for Biden to discuss the Women’s Agenda, released by her father’s campaign, and bring awareness to women’s issues in the 2020 United States presidential election. President-elect Joe Biden is close with his entire family, which includes his youngest daughter Ashley Biden. You’ve probably heard less about Ashley than Joe’s other children; she lives a quieter, less public life than her older brothers, Hunter and Beau (the latter, who served as Delaware’s attorney general, sadly died in 2015). Married in 2012 to Dr. Howard Krein, the social worker/career development and education liaison has evolved into a business owner and passionate advocate for social justice. So what else do we know about the soon-to-be First Daughter, who is by far the most low-key of the president-elect’s children? Ashley is Joe’s second daughter. Her older sister Naomi and Joe’s first wife Neilia were tragically killed in a car accident in 1972 (Naomi, nickname “Amy,” was only 15 months old). Joe married Jill Biden in 1977, and Ashley was born in 1981. Ashley accompanied her father on the campaign trail, and the experience inspired her to a career as an activist. “My dad always taught me that silence is complicity, and that I must stand up for anyone who was being treated unfairly. That has stayed with me through adulthood, and is the guiding principle in my professional life,” she has explained. She went to a private high school in Bloomington, Delaware, and later majored in cultural anthropology at Tulane University. Unsure what her next steps would be, Ashley took shifts at a local pizza shop in her hometown until deciding to pursue her passion for activism. In 2010, she earned her master’s degree in social work through from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice. She was named executive director of the Delaware Center for Justice in 2014, which focuses on criminal justice reform. Her work was impacted by tragedy in 2015: Her older brother Beau passed away of brain cancer. “It was very important to Ashley,” her mom explained at the time, “to carry on Beau’s legacy—the reforms in criminal justice, his work with children. Hunter, too, set an example with the work he was doing. She always had a reason to be engaged with them and she found a way to follow her own lead.” She has spoken about knowing that Beau will be part of his dad’s inauguration: “He was 46 when he passed. Dad will be the 46th president,” she told NBC. Though she often stays out of the limelight, Ashley and her brother Hunter introduced Joe at the (virtual) Democratic National Convention. “He’ll be rock steady…he’ll treat everyone with respect no matter who you are,” she explained. “He’ll love you with all of his heart.” Ashley was one of several family members who joined together to support Joe, including several of his grandchildren. Ashley explained to Glamour in 2017 why she’s devoted her life to causes that are important to her. “The passion started at a very young age…My dad is a lifelong public servant; my mom was a public-school teacher—it’s in my DNA.” Because she grew up in the public eye, Ashley likes to keep certain aspects of her life private when she can. Her Instagram account is closed to the public and most of her attendance at events are low-profile. Ashley founded the organization Livelihood after Beau died. It designs and sells American-made clothing, with a goal of donating proceeds to sales to community organizations in D.C. and Delaware. The intention of the organization is “supporting criminal justice reform, improving childhood education and ameliorating economic disparities.” On June 2, 2012, Ashley married Krein at the church in Delaware where she was baptized; the reception was held at the Biden home. “This is the right guy,” Biden said at the time. “And he’s getting a helluva woman.” Ashley met Krein through her late brother Beau in 2010, and the couple planned to live less than an hour away from Beau in Philadelphia. According to his LinkedIn, Krein holds a few positions: He’s Chief Medical Officer at StartUp Health, which helps “entrepreneurs to build sustainable health and wellness companies,” senior director of health policy and innovation at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, and associate professor of otolaryngology: head and neck surgery at Jefferson as well. He also has an unofficial role on the Covid-19 pandemic response team. He’s on Instagram, apparently, but doesn’t post very much.
