Penny has been reviewing books for Kentucky Living since 1999. She grew up in Glasgow, Ky., graduated in 1992 with a Marketing degree from Western Kentucky University, and now makes her home in Georgetown. In addition to reviewing books, she has served as editor to a few local authors and as a community correspondent for the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Penny calls herself a Wearer of Many Hats since she also owns two small businesses, a photography studio and a gymnastics pro shop, and is a stay-home mom to her two teenage daughters. She enjoys actively volunteering in their school, cheering them on at gymnastics meets, reading, cooking, and crafting. She loves all things Disney and even had a Mickey Mouse-themed wedding to her husband and Prince Charming, Jamie.
