After almost two and a half years with the first lady, Hannah August is leaving her job in the East Wing at the end of the year. She'll be replaced by Joanna Rosholm, who's been a White House regional communications director and has worked in the West Wing since 2010.

Rosholm, who begins her job with the first lady on Jan. 6, served as assistant press secretary at the Democratic National Committee before she joined the White House.
