Madeleine Westerhout guides former U.S. Representative Henry Bonilla (R) as he arrives to meet with Trump at the Mar-a-lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.

Madeleine Westerhout became a familiar face in late 2016, when she was frequently photographed guiding then president-elect Donald Trump's guests - such as Rick Perry, Mitch McConnell, and Goldman Sach's Gary Cohn - through the lobby of Trump Tower.

While some media outlets dubbed her  the "elevator girl," Westerhout was quickly establishing her role within the Trump transition team. In January, it was announced that she would be an executive and special assistant to the president himself - making calls for the president and helping schedule his days. On June 30, the White House published the Staff Salaries report, revealing Westerhout's $95,000 annual salary. 

Here's everything we know about 26-year-old Westerhout.
