Let’s Get Acquainted

Hi! I’m Penny,   

I’ve been helping people of all ages and stages overcome the challenges of change for nearly two decades. Through life lessons and experiences that have taken me from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows—and through experiences shared with me from other people’s lives—I’ve discovered the way to bounce rather than break when life hits hard—and the amazing power of grace and choice. 

 I suppose it’s impossible to have been the wife of a career naval officer and attaché without having a story or two to share—so I write and speak. As the mother of five (yours, mine and ours) with 29 moves to my credit—from the eastern shore of the USA to Hawaii, Europe, South America and back—when it comes to dealing with change— I’m an expert. I’m also the consummate undergrad, eagerly and continually learning from Christian leaders like Pastors Chuck Swindoll and James MacDonald and masters of personal development like Brandon Burchard, Marie Forleo, and Amber Vilhauer. 

 My current address is between a railroad track and a peach orchard where I live with my husband, Bill, and a rescue pup from the streets of Charleston, SC named Hunley. Life in tiny-town suits me just fine—especially with Charleston and Atlanta only a couple of hours away. I love being able to drive to the grocery store without seeing a single traffic light, and owning a phone directory thin enough to keep in a kitchen drawer along with the pot holders.  

 Early morning is my favorite time of day. I relish being out in the garden pulling weeds and bird watching as the sun rises. I like light caramel lattes from McDonald’s, and can’t pass a Krispy Kreme shop if the “hot donuts” sign is lit. My favorite color is blue unless it’s purple, or green or…Without a doubt I love Jesus, my country and have a real soft spot for military families. I do what I can to support my community, and attend a church where members feel more like family than friends.  

Well, that’s enough about me—now it’s your turn.
