Women of the White House in the November Issue of ‘Essence’


Essence magazine’s November issue features the “Women of the White House”  who keep President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and their administration running smoothly.

Twenty-nine women staffers  gathered for a photo shoot in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building—the youngest only 23 (Jordan Metoyer, assistant to the deputy director and senior advisor to the Office of Management & Budget Director), and one with the coolest title ever: press assistant and senior wrangler (Desiree Barnes, 27). 12105871_10153766330579416_329533106787508847_nThey all share a common trait, says Chynna Clayton, 27, Michelle Obama’s special assistant and trip director: “The White House is composed of people who are passionate about the country.”
