While her experience spans a number of technology verticals, Brittany has carved out her own niche as our resident health care and genomics expert. She is particularly strong on industry media relations, as well as building and executing comprehensive B2B and consumer marketing programs in this space. She loves working with scientists and engineers who are changing the world for the better.

Brittany’s other passion is in food systems innovation and technology. Before joining JDI, she co-founded The Food Lab at UT, an organization meant to help entrepreneurs improve the global food system. Now, she's into cricket flour, big data for farmers, and aquaponics.

She graduated from the University of Texas with a Plan II degree (yeah, we don’t know what that means either). She's now based in the DC Metro area where she enjoys long weekend hikes with her husband and their two dogs, Scout and Charlie. You can follow her on Twitter at @brittanyrhea and on LinkedIn here.
