Senator Stephanie Bice was elected to the Oklahoma State Senate in 2014. She represents District 22 which is comprised of northern Oklahoma County and eastern Canadian County, including parts of Edmond, Deer Creek, Piedmont and Yukon.
While still in her first year in office, her leadership skills and abilities soon garnered state and national attention. Bice was chosen as one of 52 legislators across the U.S. for the States Legislative Leaders Foundation Emerging Leaders Class of 2015. She was also selected as a GOPAC Emerging Leader for 2015 and received the Oklahoma State Chamber of Commerce Rising Star award. Bice was also selected as a member of the Governing Institute Women in Government Leadership Class of 2016. In 2018, she was chosen for the prestigious Aspen Institute-Rodel Fellowship in Public Leadership, one of only 24 lawmakers nationwide. She previously served as an Assistant Majority Floor Leader.
Bice worked for eight years for her family's technology company in a variety of capacities, including financial oversight, business strategy and marketing. She later became vice president of business development for a boutique digital marketing agency located in downtown Oklahoma City.
Because of that experience, Bice is keenly aware of the challenges small-business owners face as they strive to grow their companies and is committed to ensuring no undue burdens are placed on Oklahoma small business owners.
Bice is a fourth-generation Oklahoman and graduated from Putnam City High School in Oklahoma City. She earned a bachelor's degree in marketing with a minor in international business from Oklahoma State University.
She has previously served on the executive board of the Oklahoma City Chapter of American Marketing Association, as well as school advisory board member and chairman of the Pastoral Board for St. Eugene Catholic Church and School.
Bice and her husband Geoffrey were married in 1996 and are members of St. Eugene Catholic Church in Oklahoma City. They have two daughters.
