As SPED Homeschool Founder & CEO, Peggy is a leader in the homeschooling community and is a popular speaker on home educating students with learning challenges. This physicist turned home educator left a lucrative career in the medical device industry to teach the struggling learners in her own home, which eventually turned into a lifetime calling. Peggy founded SPED Homeschool in 2017 and now leads an organization that empowers thousands of families across the globe each year to create specialized home education plans.

Peggy is also the host of the very popular live broadcast and podcast, Empowering Homeschool Conversations, a weekly talk show where her guests address relevant issues related to customizing homeschooling for unique learners.

  • Mothers of Preschoolers Area Coordinator for MN, ND and SD.

She is certified by the American Association of Christian Counselors and trained as a Precept Bible Study leader. Plus, on the side, she is a professional aerial silks performer and instructor at her other business, Eternal Aerial Arts LLC.
