Julianna Smoot starts as new White House Social Secretary

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--New White House Social Secretary Julianna Smoot's first big event is Monday--the massive Easter Egg Hunt on the South Lawn of the White House. Smoot was spotted Wednesday at the planting of the White House Garden with First Lady Michelle Obama.

She's been on the job since March 22, taking over from now former Social Secretary Desiree Rogers. The first event of Smoot's tenure was President Obama's March 23 signing of the health care bill. The Social Office oversees every event in the White House, from bill signings to dinners and receptions.

Much of the planning for the Easter Egg Hunt--which brings thousands of people to the White House--was done under Rogers watch.
