A student of politics, argument and persuasion, Brett has worked in DC and in state houses across the country to inform public policy on a variety of topics, from state licensing to conflicts of interest in federal health and science agencies, to COVID relief. Prior to serving as CrossFit's Head of Government Relations, Brett worked in House and Senate offices, and later at a large, full service public affairs and lobbying firm on advocacy and public relations campaigns.
