Thanks, my fellow Pac Ties bloggers, for commenting on my “Remember the (API) Ladies” post and bringing to my attention that a third woman has been appointed a prominent role in Obama’s administration.

On March 2, President Obama appointed Nancy-Ann Min DeParle to lead the White House Office of Health Reform.  She is only 36 (relatively young for such a high-ranking position) but already has a lot of relevant experience.

Read more about her in this article in The Huffington Post.
