THE HILL | TDY, a Bipartisan Health Care Consulting Firm


“’Healthcare legislation continues to become a bigger part of what Congress does, and working on healthcare legislation continues to become more complicated and more important,’ Tarplin says…”

“The veteran healthcare lobbyist recently launched the small specialty healthcare shop with two colleagues who have similar experience and similarly top-quality contacts in the executive branch and Congress.”

“’ We’re all well-connected in the … [Department of Health and Human Services] and White House and Hill arenas,’ says Tarplin.”

“Raissa Downs and Jennifer Young are Tarplin’s partners. Downs joins the firm from Barbour Griffith & Rogers after working as a senior member of the HHS legislative-affairs shop during this administration and a senior aide to Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.). Young is new to lobbying, having left HHS last year as assistant secretary for legislation. Her résumé bears a rare and distinctive feature: She has worked on both the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee. Her experience is rounded out by an earlier stint at the National Governors Association.”

“Tarplin is counting on the partners’ combination of political savvy, policy expertise and inside access to make them stand out in a crowded, competitive field.”
