Penny has always loved children and she knew since her high school years that her goal was to become a teacher. Her first job was working for a year in a hospital records department before making the decision to stay home and raise her two children. While raising her two daughters, Penny took on the great responsibility of being a Girl Scout troop leader.
After her children went on to college she finally realized her dream of becoming a teacher. She began working at Stepping Stones Day School, which is a private school sponsored by her church, First United Methodist Church. She began as a preschool teacher. Thirty-nine years later, she is the director of the program. Penny spends her spare time taking on active roles in organizations such as March of Dimes, American Heart Association, and United Way. Her dedication and commitment to future generations are apparent in every aspect of her life.
