Kristen O’Neill will join the Wynne Health Group on March 5 after over six years as a health policy advisor on Capitol Hill. Most recently, Kristen served as Health Policy Director for Representative Gene Green, Ranking Member of the Health Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
Thanks to her tenure with a Member of Congress widely praised for his ability to work across the aisle, O’Neill helped develop several pieces of marquee legislation, including the 21st Century Cures Act, MACRA, the opioid-related CARA legislation, FDA Reauthorization, and the Drug Quality and Security Act. A native of Dallas, TX, Ms. O’Neill graduated Magna Cum Laude from Wake Forest University with a degree in Political Science.
“Kristen’s substantive, bipartisan approach is a perfect fit for our firm,” said Wynne Health Group Founder and CEO Billy Wynne. “She will add tremendous value for our clients through her strong relationships and deep expertise on the wide array of issues the Energy & Commerce Committee addresses, from Medicaid to the FDA to provider and health plan reimbursement.”
O’Neill will join the firm as Vice President and work out of its office on Capitol Hill.
