Lobby firm hires Sen. Burr's healthcare adviser

Cassidy & Associates is adding an experienced Senate staffer to its healthcare team. 

Jennifer Nardi, who most recently worked for Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), is joining Cassidy to work on healthcare and veterans issues, the government-relations firm said in a statement.

Nardi was a healthcare policy adviser to Burr, ranking member of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, and has worked at the Food and Drug Administration.

"Jennifer is a great complement and reinforcement to our team. Her in-depth insights and knowledge of the legislative and regulatory process in health care make her a tremendous asset to our clients," Vice Chairman Gregg Hartley said in a statement.
