Trump Administration officials announced Monday that former Fox & Friends and Fox Friends First anchor Heather Nauert has been named spokesperson for the State Department.

“The Department of State is pleased to welcome Heather Nauert as the new State Department spokesperson,” according to an official statement. “Nauert comes to the department with more than 15 years of experience as an anchor and correspondent covering both foreign and domestic news and events, including the 9/11 terror attacks, the war in Iraq, and the genocide in Darfur, Sudan.”

Nauert, 47, will serve as the administration's main voice at the State Department regarding Trump foreign policy priorities and objectives. The position is located in the Bureau of Public Affairs.

Administration officials said Nauert's "invaluable experience" with the media includes a long interest in international affairs that will fit well in her new role.

Jen Pasaki served as former State Department secretary under the Obama administration.

Nauert attended Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts and received her bachelor's in arts and communications at Mount Vernon College for Women. She earned her master's in Journalism at Columbia University.

She is married to Scott Norby, an investment banker at Goldman Sachs. They have two children, ages 7 and 8.

Nauert is a former member of the Council of Foreign Relations, a non-partisan think tank specializing in U.S. foreign policy and international affairs. The organization has over 4,900 members. Nauert's estimated net worth is $3 million, according to Heavy.com.
