Peggy was born in Luanshya, Zambia and spent the first 15 years of her life there, in places like Mufulira, Chingola, Bancroft and some places that weren’t on any map at the time the family lived there. She came to Canada with her parents and 7 siblings shortly after Zambia gained its Independence in the mid-sixties.
She worked for many years in the banking sector, and retired 6 years ago, at which point she decided to volunteer with the local Habitat for Humanity group in Calgary. She has been a weekly volunteer with Habitat for almost 5 years and worked on 6 different building sites in the city. This will be her first Global Village experience.
Peggy and her husband Rick are the proud grandparents of 5 grandchildren, and four grown children. Between times enjoying grandchildren, she has been able to travel to some exciting places like India, Africa, Europe, Australia and Thailand, and also paints and enjoys the benefits of yoga, thanks to her Yoga-teacher sister Katie, who is also going on this trip.
Peggy is also a very talented artist, see her FaceBook page Album My Paintings
Peggy’s first Global Village Build was in Sep 2010.
