Stephanie Peterson, ’99, CPA


Associate Vice President of Finance
 

WHY I WEAR GREEN: Growing up in Grand Forks, UND has made a difference in my life, from going to various sporting events as a kid to attending UND after high school, working on campus as a student to being so happy to work on campus again as a professional. My oldest daughter is also a proud UND alumna!
