THE GATEKEEPER
On my back porch in Castle Hayne, NC, I spoke into my hairbrush (a poor substitute for a microphone), “I’m so happy to be number one this year.” I imagined  accepting the best actress award at the Oscars. This was a sweet memory as I sat in the orchestra section at the Academy Awards many years later. My dream was to be surrounded by individuals in an elite class. As executive assistant to Jack Valenti, president of the Motion Picture Association of America, I met and worked with Hollywood celebrities and Washington powerhouses. Strap on your seatbelt for a look behind the curtain during my adrenaline- charged rollercoaster ride as one of the top ten “gatekeepers” in Washington for sixteen years. Helen Walker
JACK VALENTI 
President and Chief Executive Officer, Motion Picture Association of America
“She [Helen] had my warrant to deal with those who have business with the MPAA and with me, and on her own instincts and judgment, developed the proper response for me. …Throughout her career at MPAA, I entrusted [Helen] with confidential matters. Additionally, she worked closely with my wife and children on family matters pertaining to banking, travel, and other areas. …Helen acts with ‘professionalism’ in every assignment. This is the highest compliment I can bestow on anyone.”
Jack Valenti April 4, 1991

Helen writes with an extraordinary ability to tell her story as if sitting with you on her porch sipping Southern homemade lemonade. She is a witty, warm, successful woman who touches everyone. Helen was an exceptional executive assistant for sixteen years to my dear, late friend, Jack Valenti, president of the Motion Picture Association of America. Take this walk down memory lane with Helen. You will enjoy every step.
