Her Excellency Marta Gabriela Michetti was inaugurated as the Vice President of Argentina on December 10th, 2015, becoming the second woman to serve in the position.
She is a member of the Republican Proposal and Cambiemos coalition.
She earned a degree in International Relations from the Universidad del Salvador, and a Master’s Degree in Business Management and Integration. Shortly after graduating from college she began working in public administration in the area of foreign trade.
Michetti entered public service in 1989 in the Province of Buenos Aires, and the following year joined the executive staff as a technical adviser at the Argentine Ministry of Economy.
After the crisis of 2001 Gabriela decided to become involved in politics because she felt that this was the best way to make her contribution to improve the everyday lives of people in her country. Michetti joined the Commitment to Change party led by Mauricio Macri in 2003. The party became part of the PRO movement, and she was elected that year to the Buenos Aires City Legislature.
In the years that followed, she was a legislator and then a Deputy Chief of Government for the city of Buenos Aires. She was elected to national office as a member of the Chamber of Deputies, and later as a Senator.
