White House: Office of the Vice President

Lise Clavel, Assistant to the Vice President; Special Assistant to the President, Intergovernmental Affairs, Public Engagement, and Correspondence

Campaign veteran Clavel joined the White House in late June after serving as Virginia state director for Obama's reelection effort. A New York City native, Clavel managed the 2008 and 2010 House campaigns of former Rep. Tom Perriello, D-Va., and served as the lawmaker's chief of staff during his sole term in office. She holds a bachelor's degree from Yale University. Clavel, 32, says she was motivated to enter politics by Perriello's "values-based" campaign because she "felt like his being elected to Congress would actually make a difference in people's lives." The Office of Intergovernmental Affairs serves as a liaison between the White House and state, local, and tribal governments. Of her new post, Clavel says, "I love collaborating with people from lots of different backgrounds and viewpoints to get things done, and I look forward to putting that skill to use in Vice President Biden's office." She is married to Bill Sanderson, a lawyer with McGuireWoods, and enjoys running in her spare time.
