Penny’s specialties include speechwriting, feature articles and corporate communications.

She has been writing executive addresses for more than 10 years, perfecting story arcs and tailoring content for each audience. Inspirational speeches, state of the union and fireside chats are among her specialties.

In addition, she has written feature articles on sustainability and diversity, from small business owner profiles to reportage on major cultural events, capturing the personalities and popular appeal of a wide range of breaking trends and important issues.

She can deliver a completed project with information you provide via email or in an online or in-person meeting or work in a more collaborative manner to craft your project if that is your preference.


Penny enjoys travelling and has been fortunate to visit Canada, Mexico, Australia, South Africa and several countries throughout Europe. She loves theater, and the performing arts, both as a participant and as an audience member.

She is an actor and performer in addition to being a writer and has presented at TEDx talks and storytelling events across the country. Because she understands that public speaking can produce anxiety, Penny enjoys coaching presenters and speakers to be fearless and confident at professional appearances, whether in small groups settings or in front of thousands.
