She has been appointed for a three-year term.
Starkey was appointed by Florida House Speaker Chris Sprowls, according to a Pasco County news release.
In a letter to Starkey, Sprowls congratulated the chair for her involvement, the news release says.
“It is a pleasure to appoint you to serve as a member,” Sprowls said. “Thank you for your willingness to serve on behalf of the Florida House of Representatives.”

The Florida Alliance to End Human Trafficking is a nonprofit organization created by the Florida Legislature to provide funding, support and assistance to the statewide efforts to end human trafficking. Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud or coercion to obtain some type of labor of commercial act. Florida ranks third in the U.S., in human trafficking cases reported, according to the Alliance.
