Guest Speaker: Fiona McFarland, State Representative, District 73

Representative Fiona McFarland was elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2020, and chairs the House Transportation Subcommittee. She has championed wide ranging policy from increasing case workers for child welfare services; regulating how companies use our personal data; improving 911 emergency services; and making historic investments in sea level rise, coastal resiliency, and creation of the Florida Wildlife Corridor.

Representative McFarland is a 2008 graduate of the United States Naval Academy. She served as a Surface Warfare officer, deploying onboard guided missile destroyer USS Preble (DDG 88); she was a plankowner of Littoral Combat Ship USS Coronado (LCS 4); and served in the Navy Office of Information in the Pentagon. While on active duty, she also earned an MBA from University of Chapel Hill. She continued her service in the US Navy Reserves, deploying around the world for everything from antisubmarine warfare efforts above the Arctic circle, to partnership building exercises among regional African allies and partner nations.

In her civilian capacity, Fiona worked for the business management consulting firm McKinsey and Company, where she served clients across media, consumer goods, manufacturing, and advanced technology industry, consulting directly with senior executives of Fortune 500 companies.

Fiona is married to fellow Naval Academy classmate Matthew Melton and they have three young boys.
