Thumbs up Soror becomes Deputy Press Secretary to Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.)

Poet joins Boxer’s office as deputy press secretary

Even with a cold, Sarah Misailidis is on point. The polished demeanor of this 24-year-old from Silver Spring isn’t deterred by the summer tickle in her throat.

“You always have to be one step ahead of the game,” she said about her work. Currently press assistant to Rep. Albert Wynn (D-Md.), she is about to move to the Senate side to work as deputy press secretary to Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).

“It’s been intense, working for a local member,” she said. “My time is not my own time. Everything is on the go, go, go.”
Maybe that’s why she’s got the cold.

Misailidis says that most of what she does after the workday is still work-related, be it a softball game or movie screening.

To unwind, she spends time with her boyfriend, who will soon be a Capitol Police officer. On the weekends, she says, they try to take advantage of whatever time off she has.

Last year, Misailidis won a spot on The Hill’s “50 Most Beautiful” list. She says she got comments and phone calls about it for months afterward.

She’s not just beautiful. Misailidis is also a poet, and loves to listen to poetry, even though she has little time for it. She enjoys every kind of poetry, “from Tennyson to hip-hop.”
