Copywriting for marketing, PR and collateral materials in support of campaigns are part of her portfolio; special interests include articles in support of educational programs particularly technology, medical research and astronomy/cosmology. Peters formed her own company in 2015, MDP Creatives, to focus on and promote education in Arizona through writing as well as events; her experience includes significant event management in the corporate, university and non-profit environments, also part of MDP Creatives services. Peters is a graduate of Lindenwood University in St. Louis, MO, holds a Bachelors of Arts in Communications and Marketing graduated Summa cum Laude.
