Mary Fallin became the first female governor of Oklahoma on January 10, 2011, and was sworn in for her second term on January 12, 2015.

During her first session as governor, Fallin saw many of her legislative priorities signed into law including lawsuit reform, workers’ comp reform, comprehensive education reform and government modernizations. Fallin launched an initiative to increase the number of college graduates in Oklahoma to help the state attract and retain jobs. She also put forward a road and bridge plan to eliminate nearly all of the deficient bridges on the state’s highway system.

She served two terms in the Oklahoma House before becoming the first woman to be elected lieutenant governor of Oklahoma in 1994. In 2006, she was elected to the U.S. Congress. Fallin is married to Wade Christensen, Oklahoma’s first “First Gentleman,” and the couple has six children between them.
