Carolyn brings to her practice a unique blend of technical and policy experience, having served for over 20 years as counsel to the members and staff of the House Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees. Carolyn utilizes her substantive background and in-depth experience in the regulatory and legislative process not only to counsel clients on compliance, but also to assist in strategic planning and advocacy in an uncertain and changing regulatory and legislative environment. Her current practice focuses on regulatory, compliance and legislative issues relating to health care, pensions, executive compensation and tax. Her clients include insurers, health plans, financial institutions, pharmaceutical manufacturers, media conglomerates and trade associations.

Prior to joining Alston & Bird, Carolyn was associate deputy chief of staff of the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation. During her 20+ years on the Joint Committee staff, she was responsible for major health, pension and tax legislation from the Tax Reform Act of 1986 through the Pension Protection Act of 2006. In addition to advising Ways and Means and Finance Committee members and staff, she also worked closely with the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the Internal Revenue Service, the House Education and Labor Committee, the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation and the Department of Labor.
