Shannon Peterson, CPA

Tax Associate

Professional Experience

Shannon began her career at Maxwell, Locke & Ritter in February 2006 as an intern from the University of Texas. After graduating in 2007, she came back as a full time tax associate, becoming only the second person to join the firm directly out of school. For the past eleven years, she has worked for a variety of clients, but has found her niche working with non-profits in the Austin community and large family groups. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her husband and kids.
