Teresa Peterson

It’s about more than numbers for Teresa Peterson.

During her 30 years with UT Knoxville, Teresa Peterson has done more than balance the books as the College of Law budget director. She has built relationships with her co-workers and the students.

“I have a passion for working with young adults, so I value the opportunity to have a positive influence on the law students,” Teresa said.

Teresa also values the great memories she has made at UT, such as speaking at former Law School Dean Richard Wirtz’s retirement reception.

Teresa and her husband, Gary, have two children, Tiffany and Brittany. In her free time, Teresa likes to travel, decorate and participate in community service activities.
