Meet Peyton

Peyton was a true adventure-seeker and absolutely loved and embraced the outdoors.  She enjoyed snowboarding, rock climbing, hiking, 4-wheeling in her Jeep Wrangler, and anything that involved adventure. 

Peyton never allowed her heart condition to limit her lifestyle or define who she was.  She lived life in a manner that most would envy – full of energy and passion, never missing an opportunity to share a laugh or give a hug to someone who needed it.  Peyton was fully dedicated and looking forward to working in the healthcare field upon completion of her PA studies at King’s College.
