For State Representative Ann Flood, caring for others isn’t simply what she does – it is the very essence of her identity.  

Her aspiration to help others is what led Ann Flood to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. She was selected by the residents of the 138th Legislative District to be their advocate at the state Capitol in Harrisburg, a role she first assumed in 2021. 

Representative Flood is committed to serving as a strong voice for the communities she represents in the state Legislature. She brings firsthand experience working and collaborating with health professionals and patients to help fortify the community, as well as business owners and job creators to enhance the local economy.

Ann is dedicated to promoting policies that will protect workers, while enabling employers to sustain and grow their business operations. Ann is focused on securing funding for Pennsylvania’s schools, colleges, universities, trade programs and other educational institutions, aiming to provide every student with the best opportunities for learning and success. Additionally, she is committed to implementing measures that will stabilize health care costs, making it more affordable, and expanding access to mental health services. 

For the 2023-24 Legislative Session, Ann has been appointed to serve on the Appropriations Committee, Labor and Industry Committee, Liquor Control Committee, and Aging and Older Adult Services committee. Representative Flood also serves as Deputy Chair on Tourism for the Policy Committee and is a member of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Women.

Ann Flood, a Wind Gap native, currently resides in Bath with her husband, Daniel. The couple takes great pride in their family, which includes their son, Jake, daughter Ella and their late daughter, Lauren, who is the namesake of Lauren’s Hope Foundation that Ann built from the ground up. Ann graduated from Pen Argyl Area High School before earning a Bachelor of Science degree in biology with a concentration in chemistry and psychology from Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  

Prior to joining the Legislature, Ann started Lauren’s Hope Foundation to enhance the quality of life for brain-injured children and offer support for their families. Ann started the foundation in 2008 in memory of her daughter, Lauren, who was only 4 years old when she passed away in 2007 as the result of a brain injury sustained at birth.

Ann’s work with Lauren’s Hope Foundation has helped fund hypothermia therapy equipment to support a cutting-edge treatment program at the Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit; helped families pay for treatments that weren’t covered by insurance; and provided specialized equipment that enabled children to remain at home with their families rather than forcing them to live in a residential nursing facility. 

In her capacity as a state legislator, Ann takes her role seriously with a strong sense of dedication to the people she represents. Representative Flood is always ready and willing to step-up and advocate for the residents in the 138th Legislative District and to be their voice when they most need to be heard.
