Good thing Barbara Morrow isn’t afraid of political battles. She’s a seasoned lobbyist who, in her new post as vice president and GC of the California Healthcare Institute, in La Jolla, will be taking on some of the hottest issues in biotechnology and other life sciences. CHI is a nonprofit public policy research organization representing leading academic biomedical research institutions and biotech, pharmaceutical, and medical device firms in California. “I try to set aside my personal beliefs and focus on what the policy of our organization is,” Morrow says of her duties lobbying on controversial issues like low-level radioactive waste for CHI. Morrow, 41, will function as a lawyer to the group’s board as well as a lobbyist. And she’s ready, having cut her political teeth as vice president of legislation for the Civil Justice Association of California, a state tort reform group. A graduate of Whittier College of Law, Morrow says it was hard to break into lobbying because few jobs in the field are advertised. She says she “papered the town” with her resume to land her position with the Civil Justice Association. That job proved worthwhile for more than just professional reasons. While at the association in 2000, Morrow met and married her husband, state senator Bill Morrow.
