Born and raised in Berea, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, Peg graduated from Ohio University with a BS in teaching and Ohio State University with an MA in Student Personnel Administration and was recruited to Seattle University as a Resident Director in 1980. Her career took her briefly away from education to Rainer Bank in Operations, where she met her husband, Terry, of 34 years, a Seattle native. She then returned to academia as an Academic Advisor for the School of Nursing at the UW. Being blessed to be an at-home mom for 10 years, she returned to the working sector as a Special Needs Teacher in the Northshore School District for the next 16 years and continues working a respite provider. Currently retired, she had become increasingly interested in where WA and our country was headed! As a Christian, patriot, and a firm believer in the principles of our Founding Fathers, she became active in seeking change on a small scale in the WA area, as a PCO. She joined several conservative organizations including EWRC, SCRWC and Bothell/North King County Republican Women’s Clubs, worked on a local campaign and for the “Just Want Privacy” initiative. She remains encouraged by Margaret Mead’s quote, “that a small group of committed citizens can change the world” and in using this philosophy, we can indeed be a force to help Washington go Red!
