Laura Peterson joined the Advancement team in December of 2018. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Bradley University in Peoria, IL where she was very involved in her sorority, Alpha Chi Omega and was a campus tour guide. She started out her career in higher education working in the admissions office for a small private Catholic school in Illinois. After a few years she returned to school to earn her master’s degree in College Student Personnel Administration at Illinois State University in Normal, IL. There she fell in love with the world of event planning while helping advise the campus programming board. She hasn’t stopped planning events or meetings since!
