Bio

Peggy Brosnan has been a leader for hiking, youth, teens, and young adult programs. A biology and genetics teacher, she advises an ecology club and Environthon team at one of the D.C. area’s top public high schools. She has done hikes to 12,000, 14,000, 16,000, and 20,000 feet in the Alps, the Rockies, the Andes, and the Himalayas respectively, and camped inside Kilimanjaro’s crater at 18,800 ft. She has kayaked Baja, New Zealand, Italy’s Elba Island, and Alaska’s Glacier Bay, but says that one kayaking moment in Canada’s westernmost islands topped them all. This will be Peggy’s 30th Summit.
