COLUMBIA — Former Missouri lawmaker Judy Baker has a new job in President Barack Obama's administration.

The Department of Health and Human Services said Tuesday that Baker will serve as its regional director for Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.

Baker, a Democrat from Columbia, served in the Missouri House of Representatives from 2005 to 2009. She lost a bid for an open congressional seat last year to Republican Blaine Luetkemeyer.

Baker previously was an executive in the University of Missouri's health care system and recently has been working as a health care systems consultant.
