Overview

As a strong believer in the intersection of community, politics, and the law, I am proud to offer my clients a well-rounded approach to their legal needs.  Clients' goals do not take a 'one-size-fits-all' form, and while one client may require complex litigation assistance, another may be best helped through a series of phone calls to state regulators in Frankfort.  As an experienced attorney and state policymaker, I am uniquely situated to advocate for clients in whichever forum is suited to their circumstances and provides the most effective and efficient solution to their concerns.  My active involvement in the healthcare industry, state and local government circles, and Kentucky business community will ensure you the experience of your own in-house counsel and the best possible return on investment for your legal budget.  Give me a call today - I would be honored to work with you.

During my time at McBrayer, I have represented a variety of industry institutions such as health benefit firms, hospitals and state regulatory agencies, including but not limited to the Kentucky House of Representatives, the Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services, the Kentucky Board of EMS, the Kentucky Fire Commission, Lextran, the Kentucky Board of Dentistry, and the Kentucky Board of Architects. Commonly provided services include: regulatory compliance; transactional healthcare; business planning and the negotiation of state and local economic development incentives; health benefit planning and compliance; non-profit entity and Board guidance, and statutory and regulatory drafting and tracking. I also frequently assist clients with legal issues related to campaign finance, elections, and Political Action Committees.

BEFORE MCBRAYER

Before beginning private practice in 2013, I led the compliance department of a Fortune 500 managed care organization, where I served as a liaison between the corporation's statewide health plan and the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services; led the preparation of materials for internal and external audits; researched legal and contractual issues that arose in the course of health plan operations; and facilitated the compilation, submission, and approval of statutory reports and communication materials. My experience in the corporate environment has provided me with a uniquely operational perspective and allows me to provide you with advice that is not only legally compliant, but is financially feasible for your company. I have spent a great deal of time ‘at the table’ with our Commonwealth’s lawmakers and regulatory leaders and know who to call to ensure your company’s success in compliance with applicable requirements.

From 2017-2018, I served the Commonwealth of Kentucky in a number of leadership roles, including as Senior Policy Advisor, Deputy General Counsel, and healthcare lead for the Kentucky House of Representatives; Deputy Commissioner for the Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services; and finally as Senior Advisor to the Secretary of the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services.  My experience and relationships within the Commonwealth’s primary healthcare agencies are vital to my clients’ success in navigating the often complex regulatory framework within which they operate.

Kentucky Leader

Community/Civic Leadership

I feel very fortunate to be a native Central Kentuckian and a member of our growing Lexington business community. Our city has much to offer, not the least of which is the hospitality and civic support of our citizens. I currently serve as a member of the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government’s Economic Development Investment Board, which helps to administer our local government’s Jobs Fund and works closely with Commerce Lexington to encourage growing companies make Lexington their home. I also serve on the Board of Directors of Legal Aid of the Bluegrass and on the Advisory Board of Kentucky Refugee Ministries, which implements the U.S. Secretary of State’s requirements for the transition of new Lexingtonians to our warm and welcoming community.

To contribute to the continued improvement of our Commonwealth’s healthcare system and outcomes, I am honored to serve on the Kentucky Chamber Healthcare Policy Council and as the Healthcare Fellow for the Pegasus Institute.  As a proud Kentuckian, I also welcome the opportunity to support and represent strong Kentucky industry leaders, including through my work with the Kentucky Coal Association.

An attorney’s work does not end in the office, and I believe strongly in the development of a close-knit legal community to provide lawyers with the skill and resources necessary to effectively represent our clients. To that end, I have served as a member of the Executive Committee of the Kentucky Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division since 2013 and as a member of the leadership of the American Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division since 2012. I am proud to have been honored as one of twelve lawyers in the nation named by the American Bar Association as a “Young Lawyers Division Scholar” for 2013 to 2014, and I look forward to continuing to support our legal community and its clients in the years to come.
