Teresa Parson Bio
As the wife of Missouri’s 57th Governor Mike Parson, Teresa Parson brings to her role as First Lady the experience of being a mother, grandmother, businesswomen, volunteer, and advocate. After working 40 years in the banking industry, Teresa retired to continue serving her community. She has served on the boards of the 30th Circuit Juvenile Detention Center, A+ Program, Industrial Development Authority, Bolivar Educational Advancement Foundation, Bolivar Chamber of Commerce, and has volunteered for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
Like her husband, Teresa Parson has a strong commitment to education. She and Governor Parson work with at-risk high schoolers as co-chairs of the Board of Directors for Jobs for America’s Graduates-Missouri, Inc. (JAG-Missouri). Together they highlight the importance of education to the next generation of leaders, as well as financial literacy and money management. She is also a dedicated advocate for special needs children, making Missourians more aware of the role these children can play in society when given the opportunities.
The First Lady, responding to a request from the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization, worked with Second Lady Claudia Kehoe to reinstate the Missouri Mentorship Initiative, allowing 300 Missouri state employees to mentor students.
As First Lady, Teresa has made the Governor’s Mansion, which she calls the People’s House, more accessible to the public through a variety of events and special occasions.
Teresa Parson is the proud mother of two children and five grandchildren. When in her hometown of Bolivar, where she grew up on a cattle farm with her three brothers, the First Lady spends time with her lifelong friends and worships as a member at the First Baptist Church.
