About Rik Mehta

Rik is a biotech entrepreneur, healthcare policy expert, small business owner, licensed pharmacist, and attorney. He’s a first-generation American who’s lived the American Dream firsthand and wants to make sure future generations have the same opportunities. Rik’s professional life has been focused on reducing the cost of healthcare by cutting through unnecessary red tape and making New Jersey a center of innovation.

As a former DC political appointee, Rik understands that government-run healthcare will result in lower-quality care and less of it. His experience in both the public and private sectors gives him unique insight into the issues that matter the most to New Jersey. Rik is married to his wife Reema and they live with their three little gentlemen and dog Dexter in Morris County, Chester Township.
