After serving as Executive Secretary with the law firm of Letizia, Ambrose & Falls here on Church Street and as sole Senior Administrative Assistant to the Legal Department of Save the Children's US headquarters, John returned to Yale at the School of Medicine and became Primary Care Clerkship Administrator and Senior Administrative Assistant to the Offices of Medical Education and Multicultural Affairs.
