Commissioner Peggy Choudhry

Peggy Choudhry was born in Providence, Rhode Island. Community service has always been a passion for her. When she was 13, she became the youngest founder to a non-profit organization focused on helping keep kids off the streets. Throughout her high school and college years she kept herself busy helping her community. Peggy was one of the first Feinstein Scholars — given the recognition for her compassion, dedication to public service and determination for making a positive difference in the lives of others.

After college, she took a position with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as an Immigration Officer and within a short time was promoted to Adjudications Officer with Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Orlando district office.

After several years of service with Federal law enforcement, Peggy decided to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a business owner. Peggy successfully owned and managed a small hotel on U.S. 192 in District 1 for over nine years. Currently, she is the President of Hospitality Sidekicks; a consulting firm that helps small hotels find success.

Commissioner Choudhry currently serves as Osceola County’s representative on the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness, Board of Directors for Experience Kissimmee, Toho Water Authority, the Four Corners Area Council, and the Transportation Disadvantaged Local Coordinating Board.

Additionally, is an active board member in many organizations, including the Osceola Historical Society, Hispanic Business Council, Osceola Resort Area Council, Community Hope Center, and the U.S. 192 Hotel Motel Association. She also volunteers for non-profit organizations across Osceola County and continues to give countless hours of community service.
