She served as secretary of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in the Philippines under the administration of President Benigno Aquino III. She held the same position under former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo but later resigned in 2005 in protest of the Hello Garci scandal.[2]
