Prior to her graduate studies, Muriel was a project manager at the Kaiser Permanente Institute for Health Policy, where she successfully planned multiple conferences and facilitated the editorial process behind the publishing of white papers on a wide range of topics including health technology, drug pricing, and improving health care delivery. She previously served as chief of staff for a state delegate in the Virginia General Assembly, advising on policy, drafting legislation, developing communications, and working with constituents and advocacy groups.
