Hi! I’m Kristen Peterson! I was born and raised in Ogden, UT. Growing up, the mountains were my backyard. I learned I loved them at a young age. I can’t count the many hours I spent as a child hiking, biking, rock climbing, and just losing time in them. Currently, living in the Ogden Valley, I enjoy being minutes from the mountains. Now I get to enjoy them with my family of 9. We love to spend our time together on the lake, on the ski slopes and even mountain biking. When the day calls for something a little less eventful, there is nothing better than just sitting on the porch enjoying the beautiful views together, I am definitely a girl that loves nature.
I went to school at Weber State University (WSU) where I discovered my passion for accounting. After I received my accounting degree I continued my education at WSU to get my Masters of Accounting as well as a CPA license. During my junior year in college I was fortunate to get a job working with a local CPA firm that eventually merged with one of the top 20 national CPA firms, Eide Bailley. I worked there for 10 years. I am grateful for the many valuable skills that I learned during my time there.
I was still working for Eide Bailly as a Tax Manager when in 2015 I met and married my husband, Ben Peterson. Shortly after getting married I decided to leave the firm and come be part of the Peterson Builders team. I have loved working so closely with my husband and his brother. It is so rewarding to watch the company that their father built grow and flourish. We consider everyone at Peterson Builders as part of the family. I am blessed to work with such a talented team from the production side, to the office side. We have such a great company family who all take pride in their work.
We feel privileged to work for so many amazing clients and thank you for putting your trust in us.
