Abby Palmer Cox became the first lady of Utah when her husband Spencer J. Cox was sworn in as governor on January 4th, 2021. She and Gov. Cox have been married for 26 years and are the proud parents of 4 children. Born and raised in the small rural town of Mt. Pleasant, Utah, Abby graduated from North Sanpete High School and Snow College, then went on to earn her degree in Special Education with a dual emphasis in Early Childhood and Severe Disabilities at Utah State University. As Utah’s first lady, Abby inspires Utahns to break down the barriers that separate people and is an advocate for “getting proximate” and connecting through our differences. She uses her platform to champion educator wellness, statewide service, foster care support, and expanding access to Special Olympics Unified Sports teams in schools across the state. Together, these four pillars make up the First Lady’s impactful Show Up Initiative.
