Bio

Karen Peterson was selected in a special election to represent House District 13 (Clearfield, Clinton, Sunset, and West Point) in December 2021. She has lived with her family in Clinton for 15 years and currently works as the Community Development Manager for Sunrise Engineering. Previously she worked as the Legislative Policy Director for Gov. Spencer Cox and as the Deputy Education Policy Advisor for Governor Gary Herbert.

As a two-term member of the Clinton City Council, Peterson has experience in local government and municipal policy as well as connections with many community and industry groups. She earned a bachelor's degree from Utah State University, and a Master's of Public Administration from Southern Utah University, where she has worked as adjunct faculty.

She and her husband, Eric, have three children and a very active Australian Shepherd. They have close ties to Hill Air Force Base where Eric works as an engineer on the ICBM program.
