Chances are good that you’ve seen Peggy riding her bike—it’s one of her hobbies and favorite forms of exercise, and she rides at least 1,000 miles every year! When she’s not on her bike, Peggy loves coming up with low fat, plant-only versions of her favorite recipes. Peggy is a certified diabetes educator and a registered clinical exercise physiologist. She has worked in cardiac rehab at Stony Brook Southampton for more than 20 years, encouraging regular exercise and a plant-based diet to help reverse heart disease. Peggy also has created a diabetes and diet coaching program on the East End of Long Island to help people reverse type 2 diabetes. She holds a master’s degree from New York University in Professional Physical Education and a bachelor’s degree from Queens College in Home Economics/Sociology, and she is certified by the NEI Institute to teach plant-based nutrition. Though she never plays favorites as a WC 360 facilitator, Peggy doesn’t try to hide her preference for Japanese sweet potatoes (which supposedly help to prevent wrinkles!) or for her favorite book, “The China Study” by T. Colin Campbell. Peggy has found Dr. Campbell’s courage to defend his research findings against the biggest industries in our nation and to face ridicule from his colleagues to be so inspiring, and she considers him an incredible role model.
