Before she was two years old, she and her family moved to Australia, and she grew up in Perth. When she turned four, she enrolled ballet lessons, and for the next 12 years she dedicated her life to ballet. When she was 16 she suffered an ankle injury which devastated her dreams of ever becoming a ballet star; instead she turned to Latin dances.

In her first competition in 2002, Peta won the Western Australian Amateur Latin State Championship, and repeated the success the following year. Little by little, Peta became more and more successful, ending in the top five in such competitions as the Lion City Championships in Singapore, Australian Open Championships and Blackpool Dance Festival Youth Under 21 Latin competitions in 2005. These successes not only boosted her popularity, but also increased her net worth.

In 2004 she became a part of the Burn The Floor dancing group, that performs around the globe, including on Broadwayl, in which show Peta was the lead female dancer. She was a part of the group until 2010, when her ambitions became bigger than the group.

In 2011 she became a part of the show “Dancing With The Stars”, but only as a group dancer, however, as of 2012 she has been a competitor, and has been named winner of the show twice so far. In her first appearance, she was paired with basketball star Metta World Peace, however the two were the first to be eliminated. In the second season she came back in a big way, winning the competition, alongside her partner American Football player Donald Driver. This success pretty much increased her net worth, but in the years to come, her net also rose, as she finished around the fifth place with her partners Gilles Marini and Sean Lowe, Brant Daugherty on seventh, James Maslow at fourth place and with Tommy Chong on the fifth position. Most recently she won the competition for the second time, this time with Nyle DiMarco, a deaf model and activist, increasing further her net worth.

Regarding her personal life, since 2015 Peta is engaged to Maxim Chmerkowskiy, a ballroom dancer, with whom Peta is a part of the live dance show “Sway: A Dance Trilogy”, and the couple plans their wedding for July 2016. Also, it is reported that Peta is pregnant and she will give birth to their first child in January 2017. Previously, she was in a relationship with Damian Whitewood for five years, however they broke up in 2012.
