The name I answer to is “Peggy” and I am married to Dale.  Our home is in Ocean Springs.  My favorite hobbies are reading fiction novels, solving Sudoku puzzles, boating, and fishing.  I decided when I was a sophomore at Picayune High School that I wanted to be a CPA and practice public accounting with an eye on becoming a partner one day.  I thank Gerald Piltz and A.C. Simms for giving me the opportunity to begin my career in 1974 with what was then Piltz, Simms, and Co.  With the retirement of Mr. Simms and the evolution of the firm to Piltz, Williams, LaRosa & Company, I was able to achieve my goal in 1982.  I consider myself very fortunate to have the opportunity to practice in such a great profession.
