Pat Brister has been a public servant for many years. She served eight years on the St. Tammany Parish Council; as well as her time with the St. Tammany Children's Advocacy Center; the Commission on Families; Habitat for Humanity; Head of Delegation to the UN Commission on the Status of Women; and many more. But her most rewarding is as St. Tammany Parish President, a role she has filled since 2012. Pat’s focus is to lead us to champion our inherent strengths, and project a vision of what this Parish can be in the future. She is leading this Parish through an unchartered era where we have exceeded a quarter of a million citizens, expanding economic development, and all the complexities (managed growth, infrastructure, and quality of life) that come with this next chapter in St. Tammany’s history.

She runs her administration on the tenets of customer service, transparency, accountability and cooperation, and has said numerous times that she absolutely loves her job. 

Pat will continue to shape the course for the St. Tammany Parish with the goal to make us the premier community in this region, and in the State of Louisiana.
