Family: Prof. Peterson is one of four children and is very close with her family. She has one son and two daughters, is married and lives in Columbia, Missouri.
She says, “I am very optimistic about being a Westminster professor and is fulfilling a lifelong dream of being a teacher. When no one else is depending on me, I love to read, run, bike, dance, hike, travel, go on adventures, watch movies, smile, laugh, and learn. Mostly, I love being with my children, helping them to explore the wonder of the world hoping they will, as I do, maintain a constant state of inquisition and learning.”
