Prior to joining Bass, Berry & Sims, Kaitlyn was an associate with Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis, LLP in Nashville, where she assisted healthcare clients ranging from hospitals and health systems to laboratories and pharmacies in the regulatory aspects of strategic transactions, daily operational matters, and Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA) compliance. Kaitlyn also advised clients with respect to the structuring of joint venture and other business relationships, private equity acquisitions, and licensure and enrollment issues. 

Kaitlyn previously served for three years as Associate Counsel at the HHS-OIG, where she was team leader for the New York, Chicago and Kansas City regions. During her time with the HHS-OIG, Kaitlyn worked with the Department of Justice to litigate and resolve dozens of FCA cases involving alleged violations of the AKS, Stark Law, and Medicare or Medicaid payment rules. In some of these cases, Kaitlyn was instrumental in the negotiation of novel CIAs and exclusions from participation in the federal healthcare programs. Kaitlyn also represented the government in matters brought under the Civil Monetary Penalties Law, resolved numerous submissions through the HHS-OIG's Provider Self-Disclosure Protocol, and assisted in the formulation of new guidance on the HHS-OIG's exercise of its permissive exclusion authorities. 

Kaitlyn earned her law degree from Northeastern University School of Law; a Master of Public Health degree from Tufts University School of Medicine; and a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and magazine journalism from Syracuse University.
