Rebecca joins ATI Advisory from Reed Smith, where she practiced healthcare regulatory law and worked with clients advancing digital health innovations. In addition to her legal experience, Rebecca brings with her a strong health policy background including significant experience studying health technology assessment (HTA) models and global health systems and comparing them against US practices.
As an attorney at Reed Smith, Rebecca advised healthcare providers including post-acute care providers and health technology companies on compliance with laws and regulations in the areas of Medicare reimbursement, fraud and abuse, licensing, clinical research, and health data privacy. Most recently, she was heavily involved in helping providers navigate COVID-19 and the changing regulatory landscape resulting from Section 1135 Medicare/Medicaid waivers and evolving state orders and guidance. A substantial portion of Rebecca’s practice focused on representing clients under investigation by the Department of Justice, HHS Office for Civil Rights (which enforces HIPAA), or state Medicaid Fraud Control Units (MFCUs), where developing defensive strategies required an intimate understanding of the relevant regulatory requirements, extensive fact and data analyses, and detailed knowledge of client operations.
Rebecca received her Juris Doctor from Georgetown University Law Center and her Master of Public Health from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, concentrating in Health Systems and Policy. She also received her Bachelor of Science in Policy Analysis and Management from Cornell University.
