Burwell currently runs the government's Office of Management and Budget, an executive branch agency that helps the president prepare and evaluate the federal budget. Does your workplace have an office manager? This is sort of what Burwell does for the federal government. Prior to her current gig, she worked in the non-profit world, running the Walmart Foundation (a distinct philanthropic offshoot of the corporation) and, prior to that, as an executive with the Gates Foundation. She's also a veteran of the Clinton Administration, working under now-Treasury Secretary Jack Lew when he ran OMB.
