Who is Jill Biden's Press Secretary? Courtney O'Donnell that's who.

I ran across this excellent article the other day on Courtney O'Donnell, Press Secretary to Jill Biden. Ms. O' Donnell was profiled in RedBook Magazine in 2009 about her abilities to juggle all her responsibilities with the second lady plus manage the duties of a being a new mother and wife. 

"When I was offered this job, we had a very large family huddle," Courtney recalls. "I always wanted to work at the White House and knew this was something I couldn't pass up. We said to our families: 'We can only do this if you support it too.' Luckily, they were thrilled.... And it helps that her boss and office have a family-first attitude; in fact, there are times when Dr. Biden might turn down a media request because she wants to attend Grandparents' Day at her granddaughter's school.

Ms. O'Donnell is no stranger to political women. She served as Press Secretary to Elizabeth Edwards during her husband's campaign for president in 2004 and also worked at the William Clinton Foundation before she started at the White House. 

You can go to RedBook to read the rest of the article.
