New PR Hire
We are pleased to announce that Denise Gitsham joined our staff in December as the PCWHFs Public Relations Coordinator. Some of you may have met Denise at the Alumni Association reception last October and I hope you will join me in welcoming her on board. Denises political career began in 1999, working on then-Governor Bushs presidential campaign as the National Hispanic Coalitions Coordinator in Austin, Texas. She moved to Washington to serve as public liaison for the Presidential Inaugural Committee and was subsequently appointed to the position of Senior Caseworker in the White House Office of Agency Liaison. In her new position, Denise will work to accomplish the goals of the Director in elevating the PCWHF programs national stature and increasing the quantity, quality and diversity of potential applicants this fall.
