(From August 2001 Monthly Review update) We are also pleased to report that one of AGI's first policy interns, Heidi Mohlman, is the new communications director for the House Science Committee, where she oversees all media interactions. After her AGI internship, she worked for Sen. Jim Jeffords (I-VT) in a number of capacities, including deputy press secretary. Most recently, she served as press secretary for his successful 2000 re-election campaign. Mohlman, a Vermont native, holds a bachelor's degree in geology from Amherst College. We wish her the best of luck!
