Peggy Watson

Retired Owner-Manager

Peggy joined Field Guides back in 1987, over time growing into a key role overseeing tour operations and our office staff as our Business Manager and becoming an owner in the company. For many years she also served as the Chair of our Scheduling Committee, which is responsible for the vital process of constructing our annual tour schedule, balancing the needs of our prospective clients, our guides, and the business as a whole.

Having worked part-time for some years into 2022, Peggy is now fully retired, though the company continues occasionally to tap her vast experience and knowledge regarding the workings of the business as well as our numerous tours and destinations worldwide.

These days, when Peggy and her husband, R.P., are not at home in Austin, you'll find them towing their Alto trailer to places around North America in search of beautiful landscapes and adventures, good music, and the wonder of life.
