Peggy Grove Wood River Womens Foundation Idaho
Peggy has been coming to this valley from the San Francisco Bay area for 40 years to ski with her family. She has now lived here full-time for almost 20 years. Peggy has a Ph.D. in Women’s Spirituality and is now retired from her career that included lecturing about the lives of women in the anthropology/archeology record. She did research on the ancient art and rituals of the Australian Aboriginal indigenous people, living with and being guided by Aboriginal elders for seven years in the rugged stone country of northern Australia. She served on the Board for six years, most recently as Board President. During her Presidency, she worked with the Education Chair to begin monthly informative presentations to update us on the state of our community. She also encouraged Membership Coffee talks to better inform our members about WRWF and she was influential in beginning the all-important Strategic Planning for the Board. She now is Chair of the President’s Council of WRWF. She is also on the WRWF Nominating Committee in order to encourage leadership and succession planning for women.
She loves writing books, hiking the trails, and snowshoeing with her Australian Shepard. Her art book & stories of her life, Woman Inscribed: Ancient Memories Found in Niches, Discovered in Fragments, Inscribed on Bodies, and Recreated from Archeological Field Journals of the Past, will be published this year.
