Ana Rivas Logan (born May 16, 1961) is a politician from the state of Florida. She served one term in the Florida House of Representatives, representing parts of Miami-Dade County as a Republican. After decennial redistricting drew her into the same Kendall-based district as fellow Representative José Félix Díaz, Rivas Logan lost the 2012 primary election to Díaz.[1][2] Before serving in the Florida House, Rivas Logan was a member of the Miami-Dade County School Board from 2004 to 2010.

She earned her bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Florida International University and a master's degree in the same discipline from Nova Southeastern University.[3]

In February 2014, she announced she was leaving the Republican Party and becoming a Democrat, citing Republicans' growing hostility to immigrants and women's issues.[2][4]

In 2016, she declared as a candidate for the Florida Senate in the 40th district, but later withdrew from the race to care for her parents.[5][6] In May 2017, she announced she was running again for the 40th district, in a special election to replace resigned Senator Frank Artiles.[7]
