operations thrown into flux late last month when public affairs director

Lynn Parrish announced her plans to vacate the post.



Parrish, who called the job ’one of the best I’ve ever had,’ has not

determined whether she will leave government service altogether.

Nonetheless, it is possible that she will follow Mint director Philip

Diehl, who last week joined Zales.com as president, into the world of

dot-coms. Parrish said that joining Diehl at Zales is an option, but

ruled out the possibility of moving to Dallas, where the company is

headquartered.



Parrish, a political appointee, has not set a timetable for her

departure.



She has been in discussion with PR agencies as well as corporations, and

will wait to survey her full range of opportunities before making a

move.



She is also awaiting the confirmation of Diehl’s successor, former

Democratic Wisconsin Congressman Jay Johnson.



Before joining the Mint in 1995, Parrish was with the Treasury

Department’s Office of Travel and Special Events.
