Personal Interests

During her free time, Penny enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter outdoors.


Penny started her nursing career in 2001 in Pennsylvania, working in LTAC, (long-term acute care) caring for geriatric and ventilator dependent patients. Once she completed her NP, she enjoyed working in an internal medicine clinic. In 2011, her family moved to Houston TX, and she started working with a pulmonary group caring for patients living with chronic lung disease.
