She comes into this new role with more than 20 years of experience and a wealth of knowledge in the HR field.

Prior to her role at The Arc of Monroe, Peggy was employed in the HR department at Anthony Jordan Health Corporation and the Rochester City School District.

Peggy currently lives in Rochester, but she is originally from Florida. Outside of the office, she likes to travel and spend time with her family.

“I chose The Arc of Monroe because its values align with my values,” Peggy said. “No matter what issues you may face in life, I believe that you must accept and own whatever it may be. You should not be afraid to talk to someone and ask for assistance.”

Peggy says she is looking forward to building relationships at The Arc. Her passion for recruiting stems from getting people excited about the things she’s excited about. Right now, that’s The Arc of Monroe! After being introduced to people who have experienced trauma or severe life stressors, she enjoys recruiting employees who will understand and support others through those challenging experiences and beyond.

“My favorite quote is, ‘never measure God’s unlimited power by your limited expectations,'” Peggy said. “So let’s take the limits off!”
