Our Practice

Washington Strategic Consulting provides a full suite of federal government relations services to corporations, nonprofit organizations, disease advocacy groups, public universities, social service agencies, and local governments across the nation.

For over a decade WSC has delivered expert counsel and insight to clients in three major practice areas: grants management and procurement, public policy analysis, and legislative advocacy.

As our company has evolved to serve the needs of an increasing list of nationally recognized organizations, our services have expanded to include critical reporting and analysis and Washington-area event planning.

The firm is led by Kyle Mulroy, a Washington veteran who has served in senior staff positions for members of the US Senate and House of Representatives.

With the support of an exceptionally talented and motivated staff, WSC helps our clients achieve their objectives by executing the responsibilities of an experienced in-house government relations and grant procurement department.

As a trusted and loyal presence for our clients inside the beltway, WSC has built an extensive track record of success securing federal funding, interpreting the complexities of legislation and regulations, navigating legislation from concept to enactment, and executing Capitol Hill advocacy events, conferences, and corporate meetings.

WSC Team

FOUNDER

Kyle Mulroy brings nearly 25 years of federal health policy and political experience to his work as an advisor, strategist and lobbyist to some of the nation’s most innovative health care providers and trade organizations.

A Capitol Hill veteran, Kyle founded WSC in 2005 to help health care executives anticipate, interpret and respond to the fast-paced, complex federal legislative and regulatory decision-making processes. He is considered a trusted, results-driven member of his client’s senior management teams, providing expert counsel and direct advocacy on a myriad of policy and political matters, including health care delivery and payment reform.

Kyle’s prior experience includes five years working at an academic medical center in New Jersey.  In 1996, he relocated to Washington, DC to serve as former Senator Robert Torricelli’s (D-NJ) health policy advisor and principal liaison to the Senate Finance Committee, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

As a Capitol Hill staffer, Kyle helped achieve significant legislative victories, including a Medicare policy allowing for increased reimbursement to hospitals for uncompensated care and a law waiving the Social Security Disability Income waiting period for Americans diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (“Lou Gehrig’s Disease”).

Kyle graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and from the George Washington University with a Master of Arts Degree in Legislative Affairs.

WSC Internships

Dozens of students from across the United States have participated in WSC’s internship program gaining hands-on, real-world experience in the nation’s capitol.

Our interns are mentored by each member of the WSC team and spend their days on substantive projects designed to enhance their knowledge about how the federal government operates and the importance of issue advocacy.

Attending hearings and meeting on Capitol Hill, assisting with the organizing of conferences and events, and drafting policy papers and articles are a few of the everyday tasks WSC interns undertake.

WSC recruits students from the Washington Center, the largest independent, nonprofit academic internship program in the country.

WSC is extremely proud that we are consistently ranked as one the most popular internship sites in Washington, DC. WSC intern alumni have gone on to impressive careers inside and outside of government in a wide range of fields.

“WSC offers a unique, hands-on, internship opportunity unlike any other program in Washington.

The interns are exposed to a wide variety of government affairs from Congressional Hearings to lobbying activities, which affords an excellent learning experience.

The WSC team treated me as an important member of their staff and I was not expected to only perform ‘administrative’ work. I contributed to a variety of projects, including everything from grant work to policy research.

The WSC internship was by far the most educational internship experience I have had and has enabled me to find direction for my future career path.”
