Carly Fiorina is an American businessperson and politician. She chairs the non-profit philanthropic organization Good360.
She was a candidate for the Republican Party’s nomination for President of the United States in 2016.
Carly is the daughter of Madelon/Madelyn Montross (Juergens), an artist, and Joseph Tyree Sneed III, a law school dean, professor, and federal judge. Her surname is from her husband, Frank Fiorina, a businessperson, to whom she has been married since 1985. Carly has German, English, Dutch, and distant French and Welsh, ancestry. Her seven times great-grandmother, Margaret Montras (1691-1739), was of French descent.
Carly is evidently descended from Emanuel/Manuel Consalus, who was born, c. 1657, in Valladolid, Castile and León, Spain. Emanuel married Rebecca Janse Westfall, who was of Dutch descent. This would make Carly of 1/512 Spanish origin.
