Aversa joined BEA Sept. 26. Her duties include working with reporters, economists and others who use the BEA’s statistical reports to keep track of the nation’s economic health.
“Given the intense public interest in the economy and BEA’s economic data, we could not be more pleased to have someone of Jeannine’s caliber joining our communications team,” said BEA Director Steve Landefeld in a statement.
She also has reported on politics, terrorism and telecommunications. She has worked for The Associated Press, Bloomberg News, Fairchild Publications and other news organizations.
