Peggy Vezina joins the RECOVER Project with over 20 years’ experience in human services. She has worked throughout the Pioneer Valley in many diverse settings. She especially loved working with youth in the Holyoke, Greenfield and Springfield communities. She has a passion for working with families and learning the supports they need to build communities where children are well loved, cared for and thriving.
Peggy feels blessed to be part of a movement of people who are changing the way we look at the world and how we engage and interact in this world in meaningful ways. What excites her about this position is the opportunity to do what she loves the most. She is a strong advocate for elevating the voices of people who have faced tremendous adversity and creating space where they can flourish and lead. She will continue to foster the development of the peer leader model, focus on staff and peer development and hopes to further integrate the RP into the larger community. Peggy strongly believes there is so much to be learned from and shared by the recovery community.
Peggy and her wife are enjoying the birth of their second grandchild. Peggy loves to travel and to be outdoors. She is very devoted to her cats and cannot get enough time to play ping pong where everything is in play!
