Meet Cornerstone

Our People

Sue Peterson, CFA | Managing Director, Client Management

As a Client Manager at Cornerstone Advisors, Sue specializes in helping widows and divorcees, women business owners and couples approaching retirement. Her dedication to serving others reaches beyond her role at Cornerstone; she also offers her expertise to a variety of other charitable organizations and non-profits such as the YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish. A love of the mountains extends further than the Seattle area – taking Sue everywhere from Iceland to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. With over 30 years at Cornerstone, Sue has a long history with the firm, beginning with an analyst role shortly after graduating from Wheaton College and evolving to the client management position we know today. She doesn’t feel like she’s stayed at the same place though; “Cornerstone is always evolving and there’s always something different to learn.”

Lucas Veldhuis | Associate Client Manager

As an Associate Client Manager, Lucas believes Cornerstone is like a family, with values aligning closely to his own. Driven by the service of others, Lucas is dedicated to helping clients reach their goals. After graduating with a BA in Business Management and Entrepreneurship from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, Lucas spent five years in the non-profit sector before joining Cornerstone. Lucas believes adamantly in a client-focused approach and is honored to be a part of the Cornerstone team. Beyond his Cornerstone family, Lucas appreciates his wife, two children and extended family for keeping him grounded. Having grown up in Anchorage himself, Lucas is grateful for the opportunity to share his love for Alaska with his family as he raises them in the Last Frontier. Lucas thrives in the ever-changing world of Cornerstone, affirming it "allows me to grow in ways that I never thought possible."
