As the receptionist/ administrative assistant in the O’Fallon IL office, Peggy Gehrs utilizes her background in financial services operations to perform administrative duties, manage the office and welcome clients to Visionary.
Peggy has always been interested in the securities industry and the impact the U.S. and global markets have on the economy. She began working as a college intern in the operations division at A.G. Edwards & Sons for 26 years and thoroughly loved it. Peggy continued with the company when it transitioned to Wachovia Securities and then to Wells Fargo Advisors, becoming a Vice President and Manager. Peggy continued another 10 years in the financial services industry, working with Broadridge Financial. Peggy made the decision to join Visionary in order to utilize her financial services experience and continue to focus on her life and family.
Peggy and her family support several charities including Make a Wish, The Tim Tebow Foundation and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Each spring, she leads an effort to work with the St. Louis Children’s Hospital to purchase, assemble and wrap 125+ easter baskets which are distributed to St. Louis Children’s patients. St. Louis Children’s Hospital holds a special place in their hearts and the Easter project continues to grow each year.
Peggy lives in Millstadt, IL with her husband. They have 5 children and 2 beautiful granddaughters. Her free time is spent with family and friends. She loves to entertain and most weekends you’ll find fun filled gatherings at her house.
