I apologize for yet another lengthy absence from my blog. I’ve been diverting all my energy into a few big projects lately. Most notably studying for the Florida Bar Exam. If you know anything about the test, you have probably heard just how stressful it is! My last blog post was right after the exam. I needed a break from blogging.
I’m so excited to announce that I passed the bar exam and was sworn in on April 16th! It was a crazy morning, I barely slept the night before, Sjögren’s was causing a nasty flare, and I was nervous. When I saw I passed, I cried! It was great to be surrounded by friends, my professors and my family during the ceremony.
Since then, I have been busy establishing my new normal. I had the chance to chat with Marco Rubio and thank him for co-sponsoring the OPEN Act. He is enthusiastic about getting it passed, the next time I am in DC, we are going to make sure everyone is on the same page strategically to get it done.
As for my work- I continue to consult with pharmaceutical and biotech companies on various projects, ranging from patient advocacy plans to legislative strategy. I am excited to be using my legal education to continue the pursuit of making the world a better place for rare disease patients.
I look forward to rebuilding my life after all of these great things, and continuing the push forward. Thank you for being a part of my journey.
