Peggy R. Hoyt

also known as Margaret R. Hoyt

About me

I am passionate about my clients and my pets!  I love working with people who are passionate about their families and providing them with lifelong protection.  I also enjoy writing to provide people with easy-to-understand explanations of complex legal subjects. 

When I'm not doing some kind of networking, I'm probably horseback riding - I like to compete at endurance and competitive trail riding events. 

I also enjoy staying in touch with clients, friends and family using SendOutCards - I'm a manager and distributor in that organization.

I host the weekly radio show, All My Children Wear Fur Coats on Nature' on Mondays at 3 p.m.
