NAPW honors Peggy D. Kelso as a 2013/2014 Professional Woman of the Year for leadership in healthcare education with this prestigious distinction. As the largest, most-recognized organization of women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 400 Local Chapters.
“My ambition was to set up a company to provide hands-on training for families based on rehabilitation techniques that do not require a doctor’s prescription,” says Ms. Kelso. After an initial career in CPR and rehabilitation instruction in both the public and private sectors, Ms. Kelso followed her ambition and established Council for Health Education & Development, LLC (CFHED), a comprehensive training center that has trained approximately 14,000 caregivers to date.
As principal and sole employee of CFHED, Ms. Kelso administers extensive training programs to families caring for their loved ones with the same precision and care she has used throughout her years of healthcare instruction. She expertly handles all aspects of the business, including finances, program development and teaching with an unwavering commitment to the provision of quality caregiver instruction by licensed professionals for the continued health of the family unit.
At this point in her career, Ms. Kelso is concentrating full time on her company and looks forward to reaching thousands of more caregivers by expanding her training classes online. “I think my biggest accomplishment is to have been able to find an avenue of teaching that did not formerly exist and be able to contract with various area agencies on aging to develop these programs so they will now be offered online,” she says.
NAPW provides an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect, learn and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
