Peg has both consulted and served as senior management for many organizations, including that of the Chief Human Resource Officer and Senior Vice President of Human Resources.

Get to Know Peg

Favorite city to visit: I have always enjoyed traveling both across the US and abroad, and I have to say that my favorite city to visit is Paris. The combination of history, art, culture, and architecture keeps me wanting to go back and explore more.

Current hobbies: Being able to disconnect, spend time outdoors, and enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of my labor are some of the reasons I enjoy gardening so much!

They always send the A-team with a high level of trust and integrity.
