West Wingers

Boston College alumna Stephanie Valencia is a contributor to the new book, West Wingers: Stories from the Dream Chasers, Change Makers, and Hope Creators Inside the Obama White House (Penguin Books, 2018). Eighteen staffers share their personal accounts of how they made it to the White House and what they did there. Each story showcases the human face of government and offers a behind-the-scenes take on the Obama presidency. Valencia worked for Barack Obama for nearly a decade, starting as deputy Latino vote director on the 2008 campaign, and then serving on the Obama-Biden transition team before joining the White House at the start of the first term. Valencia ended her time at the White House as special assistant to the President and principal deputy director in the Office of Public Engagement. Valencia is a past recipient of BC’s Romero Scholarship and has been named to Huffington Post’s list of 40 Under 40: Latinos in American Politics.
