Peggy DeSanto RN
Born and raised in Minnesota, Peggy came to San Diego in January 2017 on a vacation to escape the cold Minnesota winter…and never left. She felt guided to move to California and believes that joining the team at the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine was part of that calling.
Peggy graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin in 1987 with the Bachelors Degree in Nursing. She has worked in the hospital setting for over 30 years, gaining valuable experience in the intensive care unit, emergency room and chemotherapy settings. She also served in managerial roles as a nursing supervisor and as a nursing educator.
While acknowledging the virtues of Western medicine, her heart has always been more aligned with healing that sought to understand the true origins of disease and that empowered people to have an active role in their healing process. Because of her passion to understand the nature of disease and how to facilitate healing, she has traveled around the world and has studied various other culture’s approaches toward healing. She has also trained in various modalities of energy based medicine that can help people understand their spiritual, mental and emotional blocks and patterns that can contribute toward illness.
Peggy's passion is to understand the nature of disease and empower people to have an active role in their healing process.
Peggy feels honored and blessed to be involved in the care of the patients at the Stengler Center, and to be part of such a heart-centered and compassionate healing team.
Nurse Peggy works under the direction of Dr. Mark LaBeau.
