NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee first lady Crissy Haslam has named a new chief of staff.
Haslam's office announced that current staffer Rachel Lundeen has been promoted to the top job following the departure of Christi Gibbs.
Gibbs has been hired as the executive director of next year's National Governors Association meeting in Nashville.
Before joining the first lady's office, Lundeen worked on Bill Haslam's gubernatorial campaign and his transition team.
Lundeen said in a release Thursday that she looks forward to working on the first lady's and governor's education initiatives and managing the governor's mansion.
Lundeen holds a law degree and a master's in public policy.
