Background[edit | edit source]
Personal[edit | edit source]
Wilson is a very private person. Very little is known about her private life. In the fifth season, it is revealed that Wilson had married a year earlier without telling anyone in the office. It's also implied that Wilson is a fan of basketball star Freddy Wallace.
Professional[edit | edit source]
Upon briefly returning to the West Wing in 2016, Bob Bradley recognized Wilson. Bradley had not been in the White House since the late 1980s, indicating Wilson probably has a long history working in the West Wing.
Career in politics[edit | edit source]
Personal secretary to the Vice President[edit | edit source]
In the first season, Wilson is involved in a recurring joke in which Meyer asks if President Stuart Hughes has called, to which Wilson replies "no". Wilson also often times competed with Gary Walsh over who was closer to Meyer.
In January 2015, Wilson appeared at a congressional hearing regarding government efficiency where she appeared to spar with a congressman. Wilson used the word "robust", which coincided with Meyer at the same time declaring that the United States will have a robust response to the Uzbek Hostage Crisis.
During the government shutdown, Wilson was one of the staffers who was temporarily let go.
After Meyer announced she wouldn't run with Hughes for re-election, Wilson took a job interview with Kent Davison, who was impressed by Wilson's demeanor. Throughout the year, the staff would believe that they are flirting. Their relationship deteriorated after Davison forced Wilson to cancel a hard-won appointment with Prince Charles though they continue to be courteous to one another.
Personal secretary to the president[edit | edit source]
Wilson testified in October 2016 regarding the circumstances leading up to the defeat of the Families First Bill in the House of Representatives.
Wilson was the only person in Meyer's senior staff not to appear in Catherine Meyer's 2017 documentary Kissing Your Sister and as such only appears briefly with her face pixelated to say that she does not give permission to appear in the film.
Following Meyer's loss in the election and the ascension of Laura Montez, Wilson was the only member of the Meyer administration kept on at the White House where she continued to work as personal secretary for now president Laura Montez.
Considering Wilson's longevity in her position, it's possible that Wilson is still serving as personal secretary to current President Richard Splett.
