“I have had the privilege of working with Jennifer since I served in the California Legislature. She was among the most effective and respected chiefs of staff in the California Assembly and continued that reputation on Capitol Hill, having been part of the House Democratic leadership team while the Affordable Care Act was developed, and an instrumental leader among the Blue Dog Coalition,” said Cardoza, co-chair of Foley’s Federal Public Affairs Practice. “I look forward to building on her health care experience to develop a top notch public policy practice together.”

In Jennifer’s early political career she served as Chief of Staff for Dennis Cardoza and former Wisconsin Republican U.S. Representative Scott Klug. She later worked as Chief of Staff in the California Legislature and served as Cardoza’s finance director for his congressional campaign. In 2003, Jennifer was recruited to manage Cardoza’s office.

During her time on Capital Hill, she became an expert on a wide variety of health care issues. She plans to use this expertise to advance her career with Foley.

Jennifer’s primary role at Foley will include advising clients on regulatory, legislative, and public policy matters that mainly correlate with health care. She is an expert in managing a variety of health care issues including health information technology, traditional Medicare and Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), military and veteran’s health, regulatory processes, and assist in efforts to modernize the health care system.

“With health care legislation a priority initiative for many of our clients planning for changes in their industry, reimbursement, and core business operations, Jennifer’s experience on Capitol Hill and in the private sector, combined with her intimate knowledge of the ACA will be an invaluable asset,” said Larry Vernaglia, chair of Foley’s Health Care Industry Team.



Scott Fredericksen, managing partner of Foley’s Washington office announced, “I am pleased to welcome Jennifer to our DC office, where her successful track record in working with both Democrats and Republicans will greatly enhance the firm’s national public affairs practice.”

With Jennifer on their team, Foley will continue to provide legal and related services for complex issues facing many of today’s industries including technology, health care, sports, and manufacturing.
