Peggy is originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Her early work experience was in accounting and retail. In 1980 she married, subsequently had three daughters.

In 2014 she studied to be a foot reflexology teacher.

I was introduced to Reflexology by a family friend, Linda Baril. This was the best decision of my life. I enjoy working on all my family and seeing the benefits it brings to them. I look forward to expanding my knowledge and practical experience. My dream is to have a wonderful natural oasis where people can come to escape and de-stress and relax. I look forward to meeting all of you!
