A Special Note from Peggy…

My story–

Hi, I’m Peggy. As an adult standing 3 feet 8 inches, my life has been quite unique- a whirlwind of challenges, adventure, unusual opportunities and breakthroughs. The first half of my life was pretty much a downward spiral. By my early 30’s I thought it’s just too painful to go on.

Things changed, however, when I discovered that my challenges were actually serving me to become a bigger,

better person. Leaning to triumph over many of the difficulties life had dealt me really turned things around for me, and I began dreaming into a different future.

Coming from the field of psychotherapy, I shifted my work to professional speaking. Life quickly got very big and incredibly wonderful! New people, new places, new experiences and lots of standing ovations.

Over the past 15 years, I’ve shared my expertise with hundreds of thousands of people, individually and in groups, teaching them how to rebound from their difficulties, so they too can triumph.

I love my work! I love interacting with people, seeing them light up and transform in response to new ideas and behaviors that change their lives and businesses from the inside out! My passion really lies in waking up my own innate greatness and helping others awaken their greatness as well!

Peggy will challenge your audience

Peggy will challenge your audience to breakthrough whatever is holding them back- in their performance, leadership, relationships, work, creativity … She will inspire them to awaken their innate greatness and be a whole human being, fulfilling their potential.


Peggy has presented to prominent organizations such as FEMA, Chase Bank, Diversity Works, Texaco, United Way, Cal State San Bernardino, Marriott of London, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Lucent Technologies, Ball Aerospace, Lockhead   Martin and many others.


Peggy is the author of six-books. Her latest book, Spring Back: 5 Secrets to Building Resiliency.


She might be small, but she is mighty. From swimming with the dolphins, scuba diving, scaling towers of might, or paragliding, Peggy is centered with the one thing she embodies – expression and enjoyment of her true nature. Throughout her journey, she  discovered many tools, techniques, balms and medicines. But the one thing that provided consistent, lasting, escalating results was learning to access her inner resources, her True Nature, her Essence.
