She has served as Chair of the Seeds of Peace Board, is Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees at Blythedale Children’s Hospital, is President Emerita and a founding Board Member of The Summer Camp, which provides girls from low-income families and foster homes with a camp experience, and is a member of Dartmouth College’s Board of Trustees.

Two of Peggy’s three sons were American Seeds (2005 and 2010) and Peer Supports (2006 and 2011). Her oldest son, Eric, returned to Camp in 2010 as a member of the staff.

“My husband David and I support Seeds of Peace because we believe deeply in its mission. Seeds of Peace gives us hope that through dialogue and understanding, peace is possible.”
