Brandy Cantor has been named one of the 2022 Notable Women in Kentucky Politics and Government by The Kentucky Gazette. We at MML&K Government Solutions are very proud of Brandy for receiving such a well-deserve honor! Her hard work and dedication to our clients and the Commonwealth of Kentucky is second to none.
From The Kentucky Gazette:
“These 50 women represent some of the most intelligent and powerful women leading our commonwealth in a broad range of fields – elected office, government service, labor, lobbying, and nonprofit leadership. These women make things happen in fields that mostly are dominated by men.
A handful of these women are “firsts.” First female doctor in the Kentucky Senate, first woman to head the Kentucky Legislative Ethics Commission, first woman from Warren County in the General Assembly, first female attorney at a large firm, first woman elected to the Kenton Circuit Court bench. They are true ground-breakers.”
Brandy Cantor, a Frankfort native, has nearly two decades of experience in government relations. In 2004, Cantor joined the team at MML&K Government Solutions, a highly regarded government relations firm, representing many companies and industries throughout the commonwealth and in Washington D.C. While she has expertise in a broad array of policy areas, her focus is health care and children’s issues. Over the course of her career, she has proven to be a knowledgeable and skillful advocate.
Prior to joining MML&K, Cantor worked for the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services. During her tenure, she served as executive assistant to the cabinet secretary and as a resource management analyst for the Division of Policy and Financial Management.
In those roles, she was involved in a wide range of issues touching almost every department within the cabinet, including Medicaid, pharmacy, contracting and budget.
In addition to lobbying, Cantor is the executive director of the Kentucky Association of Hospice and Palliative Care. Having first-hand experience with hospice in her own family, she understands the importance of the services provided to patients and families when facing the end of life.
Before working in government, Cantor specialized in corporate special events, something she still truly enjoys. Cantor graduated cum laude from the University of Kentucky, with a bachelor’s degree in business management and marketing. Today, she calls Frankfort her home with her husband and two sons.
