Governor Kristi Noem is a wife, a mother, and a lifelong rancher, farmer and small business owner.
In 2010, after serving in the South Dakota legislature for several years, Gov. Noem was elected to serve as South Dakota’s lone member of the U.S. House of Representatives. In 2018, with the platform of protecting South Dakotans against tax increases, government growth, federal intrusion, and government secrecy, she was elected as South Dakota’s first-ever female Governor.
Gov. Noem often says that her greatest accomplishment is raising her three children, Kassidy, Kennedy, and Booker, with her husband Bryon.
