After an LDS Church mission to Germany, Parley attended Utah Technical College, now Utah Valley State College, in Orem, where he graduated with a degree in Business Management and Marketing.
Upon graduation, Parley spent eight years as a department manager and buyer for Taylor's Department Store in Provo.
