A Gator Goes to Columbus

Emilia Sykes (MPH ’11, JD ’11) was recently recognized by the University of Florida as one of the 2021 40 Gators Under 40. Ms. Sykes was elected to Ohio’s state House of Representatives in 2014 and currently serves as the Minority Leader.

She credits her experience at UF Law and the College of Public Health and Health Professions for some of her political wins, including a 2018 bill that allows victims of dating violence to obtain civil protective orders against their attacker.
