Instructor Bio

Born and raised in the Washington DC area, Peggy is a former aerobic dance instructor who has always had a keen interest in sports, dance and body awareness, as well as a holistic approach to health and wellness. In her "former life" she was a travel agent, training supervisor, and business analyst for a large travel company. In fact, it was on a business trip to Boulder, Colorado where she stumbled on Pilates and was immediately hooked. She completed her teacher training program in New York City under the tutelage of master teacher and Joseph Pilates protégé, Romana Kryzanowska. In addition to being personally trained and certified by Romana and her daughter Sari Pace, Peggy has had the privilege of studying with some of the most revered Pilates "masters" in the world, including Ron Fletcher, Kathy Grant, Mary Bowen, Lolita San Miguel, Mari Winsor, and Brooke Siler. She been teaching group mat and private apparatus Pilates in Maryland, DC and Virginia for over 14 years.

In 2004 Peggy left her travel career of over 25 years to dedicate herself full-time to educating and motivating others to lead healthy, vibrant lives. She founded The Wellness Scoop, LLC, which has a fully-equipped, "green" Pilates studio in Ellicott City, MD and serves as a base for her other passions as a nutritional counselor, certified weight loss coach, American Bone Health representative and Zumba instructor. Peggy is always working to increase her own knowledge of optimal health through regular conferences, workshops, books and continuing education seminars. She is anxious to meet you and help you learn the "baby steps" to viTEVity!
