Inspirational Speaker and Author, Doug Petersen is a decorated Vietnam veteran and having served more than twenty years as an aviator in the United States Army, Doug continued to serve others by working in the financial services industry, helping families with their financial security.

Like many, his journey has not always been smooth sailing. An addiction to alcohol for many years took over his life and the defects of character consumed him, pushing aside the personal values that are so important. This changed on July 11, 2001, when he placed recovery as his first priority and the reawakening his personal values within his heart and soul.

Today he continues to take deep-seated passion in making a difference in the lives of others through his life-affirming messages, and is fulfilling his life’s purpose by inspiring people into action. Author of five enlightening, thought-provoking books, Doug’s words reaffirm the good in all of us.
