Global Well-being Program Manager
The Dow Chemical Company
Peggy has been the Global Well-being Program Manager at Dow for the last two years and served as the company's Health Services Manager for almost 22 years prior to this role. She holds a Bachelor's in Exercise Physiology, Nutrition, and Dietetics and a Master’s in Applied Positive Psychology. Peggy is also a registered Health & Well-being Coach, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Certified Resilience Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, and NDPP Master Trainer.
While the Well-being Program at Dow is relatively new, she dove headfirst into creating a culture of health within the organization. She regularly presents to job sites and Employee Resource Groups. Her infectious personality and positive attitude are considered one of the reasons she is successful at Dow.
“It is likely that when employees think of Well-being, they think of Peggy,” said Ryan Marra, Peggy’s manager. “As her leader, I receive regular positive feedback on her activities. In fact, Dow’s Chief Medical Officer was the person who suggested we nominate her for this award!”
