Jody Hynds

Senior Forensic Scientist, Orange County District Attorney’s Office

Jody Hynds began working at Orchid Cellmark, (then GeneScreen) a private laboratory in Dallas in 2000.  While employed there, she was a DNA analyst and supervisor, testing forensic DNA cases and testifying for many government and private agencies in the United States. In 2008, Jody was the technical leader for Forensic Testing Laboratory, a private laboratory on the New Mexico State University campus. Since 2010, she’s been a Senior Forensic Scientist for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office as their local database administrator and general DNA expert in their DNA Unit.  She is sometimes the leader but many times the instigator of work shenanigans and enjoys answering the same question over and over again for her 2 year old son in her spare time.
