In today’s environment, privacy and security compliance must be treated as a front burner issue. Starting my legal career at HHS/OCR provided me with a unique perspective on HIPAA enforcement, especially in the breach space. Today, that perspective allows me to provide clients with practical advice on complex privacy and security issues.
I became active in health law and compliance because it is both an essential service industry and presents challenging and important legal and policy issues that need to be addressed through effective advocacy and practical analysis and implementation.
Healthcare law and risk management is an ever-changing and challenging area that requires practical, insightful written and educational resources and consulting services. As a lawyer with a keen interest in writing, teaching and consulting I was drawn to and remain very interested in working with clients to develop solutions that promote patient safety and the ability to control risk exposure.
