Mrs. Courtney Peterson, Head coach of the girl’s soccer team. She has been coaching soccer for over a decade. Before coming to DHS, she has coached club soccer both here in Florida and in Maryland. She is also a Florida Youth Soccer Association state coach both at the state level and region level. She holds a USSF “D” license. Coach Peterson has a passion for taking the game of soccer and using it to teach life long skills that can be used both on the field and in life.

Coach Peterson went to school at the University of Pittsburgh, where she earned a Bachelor’s in Nursing. She practiced as a Labor and Delivery nurse until leaving to travel the US with her Navy husband. Her degree in nursing is a great addition to her coaching role and has fed into her passion for nutrition, strength training and injury prevention. After many moves in not so many years her husband’s retirement landed her permanently on the panhandle.

Off the fields Coach Peterson enjoys her family, 2 dogs and all her house plants. They enjoy all the beautiful beach days on the panhandle. Coach can also be caught at any sporting event she can get tickets to. Including, but not limited to watching her kids play lacrosse, soccer, basketball and flag football. If there is a game, good chance Coach Peterson is there watching.
