Her portfolio of projects includes architectural survey and documentation, historic district design guidelines, context statements, historic building preservation plans, historic structures reports, National Register nominations, and HABS documentation. She exceeds the professional qualifications standards in the Code of Federal Regulations, 36 CFR 61, Appendix A, Department of the Interior for Architectural History, and History. Peggy has made presentations at statewide preservation conferences in both Illinois and Wisconsin and has made over sixty presentations about the National Register of Historic Paces Program.

Peggy has seen the transformative effect that building restoration and historic preservation investment can have in communities. Historic places anchor us to our heritage and simultaneously serve as an economic engine that drives a vibrant future through community reinvestment.
