Top Jill Biden Staffer Departs Suddenly 

( According to recent reports, a key First Lady Jill Biden advisor is quitting her position. 

NBC reports that Rory Brosius, who has been leading the Joining Forces initiative, has sent a statement to the military community announcing her retirement. When Brosius departs at the end of the month, the spouse of former Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey, Sheila, will take over. 

According to Brosius’s statement, it has been the “journey of a lifetime,” beginning with her baby steps into the East Wing as an intern with Joining Forces in 2012 and ending with her big bang entrance into the Biden Administration to help “stand up” Joining Forces. 

Under the Obama administration, Joining Forces was established to help military families and veterans find meaningful work and further their education. 

Jill Biden stated that Rory had done outstanding work as Executive Director, putting in long hours of critical policy work.  

In addition to Brosius, another member of the administration has departed.  

Carla Frank, the deputy director of the Office of Political Strategy and Outreach under Joe Biden for six years before leaving the administration last month, announced her departure from the government in an interview with Politico. 

As President Biden approaches 18 months in office, the administration is seeing an unusually high turnover of employees. 

Both senior workers and junior assistants feel the effects of poor morale and relatively low compensation. 

Former Chief of Staff Ron Klain, Director of Communications Kate Bedingfield, and Labor Secretary Marty Walsh all left their positions this year. 

Research by the Brookings Institution shows the turnover rate among Biden’s senior advisers is the second highest since Reagan’s administration. After two years, the investigation discovered that 21 of the so-called “A-Team” employees had left the administration. 

According to the analysis, there was a 15 percent decrease in White House employees from 2021 to 2022. This is compared to a 4 percent decrease under President Barack Obama and a 1 percent decrease under President Donald Trump.
