HUPAC is hosting
two exciting events at this year’s virtual Annual Convention! We are excited to
announce that lobbyists Corey Malmgren and Andrew McKechnie will give the HUPAC
Capitol Club happy hour keynote discussing factions and personalities within
the 117th Congress.
Andrew has been working with NAHU for several years as a consultant
representing the firm Tiber Creek Group. During his time on Capitol Hill and as
a consultant, Andrew has been a key player for over a decade on many of the
major legislative and regulatory efforts impacting the healthcare sector.
Andrew previously served as policy advisor to Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA)
while he was the Senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee. Prior to
his work with Senator Grassley and the Senate Finance Committee, he served as a
legislative assistant to former Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN) and former Rep. Jim
Ramstad (R-MN), a senior member of the Ways and Means Committee. In addition to
his legislative experience on Capitol Hill, Andrew has worked on presidential,
House and Senate campaigns. With a strong background in healthcare policy,
Andrew is a particularly valuable resource to clients trying to navigate and
respond to the highly regulated healthcare industry. Andrew lives in DC with
his wife and two children. In his free time, he is a competitive triathlete,
completing four Ironman races.
Corey recently joined Tiber Creek Group after serving as executive director of
U.S. policy and government relations at Merck. Prior to joining Merck, she was health
counsel and deputy legislative director to Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL). As the
Senator’s principal health policy advisor, Corey counseled him on a range of
legislative and regulatory issues related to Medicare, Medicaid, the Affordable
Care Act and public health, working routinely with the Senate Finance
Committee. She previously served as legislative counsel for Rep. Sandy Levin
(D-MI), where she partnered with the House Ways and Means Committee staff to
advise Rep. Levin on health, budget, debt ceiling, Social Security and income
security policy issues. Corey graduated from the University of Mary Washington
and the Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law.
