Joining News 8 is an expert on First Ladies, Dr. Lisa Burns, who has written books on the topic. She is also a Professor of Media Studies at Quinnipiac University.

A lot of firsts are already established for Dr. Biden as a former Second Lady when her husband was Vice President in the Obama White House. She intends to continue to teach at Northern Virginia Community College. She is also a military mom and an advocate for women and girls.
