I imagined that PhRMA Intern was a recent graduate of an Ivy League school and might even be related to Ken Johnson, PhRMA VP of Communications.
I thought that I would never learn the TRUE identity of PhRMA Intern. Just now, however, I received this anonymous comment to another blog post:
"You peaked my curiosity about Emily Johnson. According to LinkedIn, she graduated from college in 2001, grad school in 2003, and then immediately became Director of PhRMA (no joke):Emily graduated Rutgers University in 2001 and received an MPP at Georgetown University in 2003. All during that time she was a "Director" at PhRMA. Wow, PhRMA is really liberal with its job titles! Imagine an intern still a freshman in college with the title "Director"! But why didn't she include this title in her letter to me?
"After 5 years at PhRMA, she became a Senior Associate at a PR firm. Quite a step down from Director of PhRMA."
