Peggy Burns came to Prader-Willi Homes of Oconomowoc in 2009 as the Registered Dietician. Peggy has been a registered dietician for over 20 years and her experience includes working with clients in hospitals, group home and nursing home settings, and working with people undergoing dialysis.
Peggy enjoys the challenge of working with the PWHO residents and celebrates their weight loss successes. She encourages exercise as a part of each individual’s weight loss program.
“The month to month progress the clients make is amazing but what takes my breath away is when I look at how far they have come in their weight goals since admission. The staff I work with are truly wonderful caring people and I count myself fortunate to have the opportunity to work with them.”
Peggy has a Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics from the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester NY and a Master of General Administration in Health Care Administration from the University of Maryland University College.
Peggy grew up in New York, has lived in Maryland, Minnesota, and moved to Wisconsin in 2005. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends.
