In 2021 Mike Peterson joined Ashford Advisors as a Financial Representative in the North Carolina market, after leaving the corporate world to pursue his true purpose and passion, which is connecting with people and helping them connect with solutions that support a healthy lifestyle. At Ashford, Mike found the perfect fit to do just that; be a voice for his clients and help guide them to achieve financial success.
Previously Mike worked with Hummingbird Insurance where he perfected his ability to meet clients and discovered ways to help them benefit from his knowledge, compassion, and integrity.
Mike moved to Asheville in 2006, from Anchorage, Alaska with a lengthy pit stop in Bali, Indonesia. Mike and his three girls love Asheville and can often be found about town exploring and enjoying all the wonders that the area has to offer.
Formerly Mike had a career in telecommunications and healthcare. Having recently served as the Director of Business Development for Asheville Radiology Associates, he provided management consulting services for Mission Health System. During that time, he also earned a Master of Business Administration degree from Lenoir Rhyne University. Additionally, he received his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Northern Arizona University.
Mike’s major interests, other than spending time with family and friends, are exploring, entertaining, and traveling. Mike spent his late twenties enjoying snow sports in Montana, Alaska, and Hokkaido Japan. In addition, he spent several years traveling and experiencing life in Mexico, Costa Rica, Japan, India, Nepal, Laos, and Thailand. Meeting, connecting, and making friends has always been a priority and Mike has been lucky to do this throughout the world.
