I have very high standards of service and I love to give that experience to my clients. I have a strong background in sales and marketing, particularly social media marketing.

My passion shines through in every transaction, whether it be buying or selling or both at the same time (my specialty). I’m a problem solver – I don’t rest until everything is working the way that it should. And if something is wrong, I don’t rest until I’ve found a solution to make the deal work. I want each and every one of my clients to be satisfied; buying or selling real estate is such a personal transaction, and being a confidant and trusted partner to my clients is vital to me. It is my goal that all clients, past and future, know that I am their forever resource – whatever they need, I am available to them.

Peggy is an active member in the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), where she certified as an LGBT Business Enterprise. In 2009 Peggy left behind a 23-year career in corporate management to start her own Senior Move Management and Project Management Consulting businesses. In 2013, at age 53, she made a career change when she saw, first-hand, the effect life events had on women’s financial security. She realized there were very few female financial advisors and financial advisors who could relate to the planning needs of women and LGBTQ. She also learned that women want a more collaborative and educational approach to planning, which is why she asked to join Purse Strings.

After 20+ years in the medical profession I noticed that everyday people could not afford our services. I have become passionate about helping families understand how to plan for the future. One of the key aspects I help with is debt elimination. When a family gets out of debt, they are able to save money to purchase what they need or they can invest in the future. I can help with this as well. I educate families in different ways they can invest in the future.

Becoming financially savvy is only the beginning. We want our women to surround themselves with a talented and thoughtful team of financial advisors and insurance associates who will help them plan for their future. Yet, we are keenly aware that so many providers in these industries lack the skill set to work with women and their unique needs.
Purse Strings works with Financial Professionals to equip them with awareness, information, and skills so they can engage with and serve the female market.
We vet them for their flexibility, empathy, creativity, strategy, and work style. When a financial professional passes our qualifications, they become Purse Strings Approved—and we know that they are perfectly equipped to serve the diverse demographic of women.
