in 1978, Peggy graduated with a BA in Chemistry from Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania. She worked for many years as a Research Chemist for the Agricultural Research Lab of Iceland and the University Hospital of Iceland, but her entrepreneurial spirit was bursting at the seams.

Peggy still owns the title in Iceland as the 'Queen of Restaurants'.
