OKLAHOMA CITY – State Senator Allison Ikley-Freeman was selected this week to serve on five Senate committees for the 57th legislature by Senate Democratic Leader Designate Kay Floyd.
The Tulsa Democrat was appointed to serve on the Education, Appropriations and Budget and Rules Committees. She will also continue to serve on both the Senate Committee for Health and Human Services and the Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Services.
“I am honored to have been chosen by Senator Floyd to serve on these committees,” Ikley-Freeman said. “Ensuring access to health care and mental health care services are just two of my passions and my professional experience as a mental health therapist brings a unique perspective and skillset to my role as a legislator.”
Ikley-Freeman holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in clinical mental health. Senator Ikley-Freeman continues to work in her community providing mental health services and fighting for increased access at the Capitol.
Members will return to the Capitol for an organizational day on January 8, 2019, and the 2019 session will formally begin on February 4.
