Peg was born and bred in the Hyde Park, New York Area. She has suffered from mental illness since a young child, and refuses to let that define her. Peg has been volunteering for NAMI Mid-Hudson since 2014. She is a Connections Support Group Facilitator, Peer-to-Peer Leader, In Our Own Voice Presenter, and is a State Connections Facilitator Trainer. Peg is a creative writer, loves to sing and model. Peg is walking the catwalk to stand up for what she believes in and can express it in a way that she already enjoys, which is modeling! Her favorite quote is "You can do it!"
