About Evan Peterson

Evan Peterson grew up in Round Rock, TX after moving here with his family in 1984. From a very early age, he found money fascinating. With his father's influence, at age 15, he began studying the stock market and decided to pursue finance as his field of study. While attending college at St. Edward's University in Austin, TX, Evan worked for IBM and helped test and develop Home Page Reader, the world's first talking web browser for the visually impaired.

Evan graduated from St. Edward's University in August 2002 with a BBA in Finance and a Minor in Computer Science. Shortly after graduation, he worked as a proprietary hedge fund trader, managing a large portfolio of equities, at Zone Trading Partners, LLC.

After 2 1/2 years successfully trading, Evan decided he wanted to help individuals with their own money issues. He then studied and passed the Certified Financial Planner™ examination after comprehensively studying for 18 months. After passing the CFP® exam in November 2006, Evan was granted the ability to use the prestigious designation in February 2007.

Evan currently resides in Dallas, TX. When Evan is not working he keeps in shape by working out, running, and staying active. In addition, Evan travels frequently with his wife, Ashley, and enjoys experiencing new cultures, scenery, and climates together as a couple. Ashley and Evan currently have one fur-baby, a 65 pound black lab named Hallie.
