Named as a Distinguish Alum at the University of Central Oklahoma and one of “Fifty Women Making a Difference,” Peggy delivers presentations that help encourage and challenge audiences to focus on what matters most. Peggy shares what she has learned throughout her life including colorful and inspirational tales of her life as a woman of faith, a mother, grandmother, widow and corporate CFO.




Growing up on a dairy farm in rural Oklahoma, Peggy learned the value of hard work, high morals, and loving everyone. Despite being kicked out of the sandbox for having red hair, Peggy survived to be valedictorian and Oklahoma District Dairy Princess and earned a scholarship to UCO.

It is there where one of the defining moments of her life occurred. At the church where she attended, she met Ben, the love of her life, and they were soon married. In March of 1976 Peggy traded in her tiara for a hard hat, as she and Ben and another friend started Midwest Wrecking Company. Today it is the largest and one of the most respected demolition companies in Oklahoma.



In 2015, Peggy’s fate changed once more, as Ben, her beloved husband of 44 years, died unexpectedly. She will tell you that it was the most difficult part of her life. Nevertheless, Peggy continued as CFO and became involved in multiple non-profit organizations – determined to give back. With four children and nine grandchildren, Peggy juggles her time between their activities and the world of non-profits.



Peggy’s down to earth humor, life’s experiences, and demonstrations are sure to hold your attention. Whether a small church group or a large professional group, Peggy will inspire you, motivate you, and encourage you.

Peggy shares what she’s learned throughout her life, including colorful and inspirational tales of her life as a woman of faith, the ultimate family woman and a corporate CEO.
