Representative Kay Floyd graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology, a minor degree in political science, and a minor degree in philosophy. After graduating from OSU, she attended law school at the University of Oklahoma where she received her Juris Doctor degree in May, 1983.
After working in private practice, she worked as an Assistant Attorney General and the Deputy Executive Director for the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission.
Representative Floyd has served as an Administrative Law Judge for the State of Oklahoma and as a Special Municipal Court Judge for Oklahoma City. Her appointment in 1990 made her one of the youngest woman in Oklahoma history to receive a judicial appointment.
Along with her judicial duties, Representative Floyd taught as an adjunct professor at Oklahoma State University and worked as an attorney for the senior citizens division of Legal Aid of Western Oklahoma. She has also worked as a volunteer on the Citizens Action Committee for the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter and is a member of the Oklahoma Bar Association’s Women in Law committee, Legislative Monitoring committee, and Government and Administrative Law Practice committee.
Representative Floyd is a founding member and Vice President of the Board of Directors for the Justice Alma Wilson SeeWorth Academy which was established in 1998 and which currently serves 485 at-risk youth in the Oklahoma City community. She is also a member of the Board of Directors of Lyric Theatre in Oklahoma City.
Upon election to the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 2012, Representative Floyd was asked to serve as the Ranking Member on the States Rights Committee, a rare honor for a Freshman Legislator. She also serves on the Rules Committee, the Administrative Rules, Oversight and Repealer Committee and the Appropriations and Budget Committees on Education and Judiciary.
Representative Floyd spent the 2013 Legislative Session focusing on improving the education system in Oklahoma. Her bill to provide suicide prevention assistance in Oklahoma’s schools failed to make it the Governors’ desk and she will continue to try and get the bill passed next year. She is currently working on Interim Studies to provide storm shelters in schools, research the correlation between domestic violence and poverty and analyze the frivolous costs of the Legislature considering and approving unconstitutional legislation.
Representative Floyd represents House District 88 in Northwest Oklahoma City.
