She quickly fell in love with Georgetown. Allison attended Winyah High School, College of Charleston, and Coastal Carolina University.

Allison’s career experience includes growing up and working in the hospitality business. She opened and managed the Hook Line & Sinker restaurant. Allison has her real estate broker’s license and is co-owner of Carolina Properties. Allison is also very involved in the community and has volunteered and served on boards for many nonprofits. Allison is married to Hugh “Hugger” Peteet who is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy and a US veteran. She and her husband live in Pawleys Island and are active members of Holy Cross Faith Memorial Episcopal Church.

Allison Sippel Peteet began her career with Georgetown County in May 2007 in the Auditor’s Office. She was soon promoted to Chief Clerk and took on many leadership roles in the office and worked closely with taxpayers, the Treasurer, the Assessor, and many other County Officials.
