Meet Our 2021 Keynote Speaker and Guest Facilitator
Inspiring us to live well, Inspiring us to be well.
Director of communications, community, and government relations, Pegge describes her role within the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District as a storyteller. Whether it is pitching stories or responding to media, crisis communication, or celebrating what is right in public education in 42 diverse schools, her daily work life includes problem solving, the heart of a good story.
Pegge searches for the story elements to bring solutions and deliver delight to individuals and organizations, oversees school and district digital platforms, engages in meaningful communications with students and publics, offers communications workshops, and advocates with community partners and legislators about all things instructional and non-instructional.
What people may not know is she is a published author, retreat leader, spiritual companion, completing professional certification in transformational leadership coaching and facilitation, and in 2021 will open the doors to her new adventure, the River Raven Sanctuary. She and her Labrador live in Soldotna alongside the Kenai River, where she delights in nature, sondering, and discovering beauty in everyday life through the lens of a camera or with the power of words.
Become curious. Be brave, believe.

"I am a mom of three and wife for 18 years. Putting myself and my goals first has never been a priority. Budgeting for this kindness to my self was struggle, but the value of what I learned and the pure and utter relaxation it was worth so much more. This retreat couldn’t have been more perfect."
