Top White House Aide Headed to Brookings

White House Deputy Chief of Staff Nancy-Ann DeParle will reportedly be leaving the White House to join the Brookings Institution as a Guest Scholar in Economic Studies.  She is scheduled to join Brookings on January 28, 2013.

Before being named as Deputy Chief of Staff, DeParle served as the Director of the White House Office of Health Reform.

Here is the official Brookings announcement.

The announcement comes just a day after her boss, White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew, was nominated to head the Treasury Department.  Lew served on the Advisory Board of the Brookings Institution Hamilton Project.

Perhaps Lew got DeParle a job at Brookings?

Lew was also on the Board of Directors at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP).  Lew is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
