At 49, Peggy has realized this “midlife stuff” is real, yet, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of women talking about it. Peggy is passionate about talking about the reality of what being midlife means and also learning how to best cope as life changes around and within us.
Often times referred to as the “sandwich generation”, meaning, raising children and caring for aging parents at the same time, she often feels “sandwiched” between the Baby Boomer and Millennial generations, and forgotten. As a society that is obsessed with youth and early success, as well as having 40% of the U.S. population ages 55 and up, Peggy is determined to give the women of Generation X a voice and a community where they can connect and be honest and open about aging.
Peggy is an inspiring and passionate leader with a unique background of working for nonprofit and for-profit entities, as well as starting and owning her own businesses. Through her career, she’s raised millions of dollars for charities and inspired thousands to volunteer and give back to their communities. Peggy has received numerous local and national awards for her work in the corporate and nonprofit sectors.
Currently Peggy is the Senior Manager of Community Development for the American Cancer Society. She is the past Senior Director of Community Health for the American Heart Association and is grateful to work for a leading health organizations that value the wellness of their employees and community.
