During law school, Kyla honed her legal research, problem-solving, and analytical skills by participating in several legal internships, including with (i) the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Division, where she created documents surrounding the use of the False Claims Act with quality of care concerns; (ii) the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Public Health Law Program, for which she analyzed, on a state-by-state basis, a governor’s use of suspension powers during the COVID-19 pandemic and the basis of that authority; and (iii) a pediatric urgent care facility on Long Island, New York, where she developed an infectious disease prevention plan that complied with the New York State Health and Essential Rights (HERO) Act. In addition, Kyla spent a significant amount of time on COVID-19 compliance work for schools and businesses.
