Margaret Mary LaPlante

Peggi's work history is vast as she was always open to any opportunity that came her way. She worked as a Buyer Assistant with Ben Bridge, Manager of Fine Jewelry with JC Penney from 1980-1990, gaining extended knowledge in gemology and diamond sales.

Michelle Winery and in various districts as a substitute teacher, specializing in math - as well as being a co-owner in a math tutoring business. Peggi's volunteer work in schools, Westgate Chapel and later North Sound Church allowed her to pursue her passion of teaching as she excited the interests of children.
