Olympic figure skater Michelle Kwan is joining Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Kwan will work on voter engagement and join the staff at campaign headquarters in Brooklyn this week, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

It’s not the first time Clinton and Kwan have worked together. The Olympic medalist worked at the U.S. State Department as public diplomacy envoy while Clinton served as secretary of state.

Kwan is also no stranger to political campaigns, having helped her husband Clay Pell in his 2014 run for Rhode Island governor.
