Ronnie Tepp, MPP


Ronnie Tepp has spent the past three decades working to craft and advance policy and programs to improve outcomes for patients. At Pyxis Partners, she serves as the Principal Investigator (PI) for the engagement awardee team to the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Research Program. In this role, she leads and manages a team tasked with reaching, educating and engaging underrepresented communities in medical research to build an All of Us participant community truly reflective of our country. Ronnie and the Pyxis team have built out a national network of trusted messengers and have developed an infrastructure to educate and support them in bringing the program to their communities. 

In addition to this work, Ronnie specializes in strategy and policy development, coalition-building, strategic planning and advocacy. She has a talent for bringing stakeholders and nontraditional groups together to develop and advance collective agendas. She has an impressive track record and has proactively identified opportunities to promote good policy, helped organizations and communities coalesce around a common strategy and built trust internally to maximize their impact. The result has been the development of formidable coalitions that have succeeded in uniting and amplifying the voice of their communities and affecting change for the benefit of patients and families. 

Ronnie’s career has included service as a senior-level congressional staffer during the health reform debates of the 1990s, vice president of a lobbying firm representing academic medical centers and health advocacy organizations, and chief lobbyist for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). 

A native of Massachusetts and a graduate of Skidmore College and Georgetown University, Ronnie lives with her husband and three children in Vienna, Virginia. She serves as a Board member of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation DC/Northern Virginia Chapter and as a mentor with New Hope Housing in Alexandria, VA, providing support to clients in their residential homes and shelters.
