Peggy Elder brings extensive office management and administrative experience to Jackson Spalding, where she plays an important role supporting our executive and marketing teams. A pro at orchestrating events, schedules, resources, research and agency communications, Peggy’s wealth of insight benefits everything and everyone she touches.
Before becoming a valuable member of our team in 2004, Peggy was at BellSouth over 29 years, serving roles for both customer technologies and telecommunications departments. A veteran in executive support, her BellSouth experience gave her expertise across a spectrum of roles, from providing support to top executives to managing network and administrative staff, resolving customer support issues, coordinating special events and even serving as a long-distance and directory operator on occasion.
The FBI hired Peggy fresh out of high school, but her Dad had second thoughts about sending his daughter to Washington, D.C. without her college education. She instead studied Business and Administrative Services at the University of Georgia and Athens Business School before settling in Atlanta.
Peggy’s a Greensboro, Georgia native who’s well known in our circle and hers for her expert cooking. She serves on a church team that feeds a hot breakfast once a month to about 100 parishioners and leads our annual Thanksgiving outreach campaigns with local non-profits. When she’s not whipping up something tasty you can find her spoiling her two grandchildren or enjoying the comforts of a good book.
