About Penny

I am a storyteller.   And I love getting lost in dusty, faraway places.  I’m happiest when I combine the two.

I am passionate about focusing attention on issues that are sometimes overlooked including social justice in global health, polio eradication, maternal and newborn health care, empowerment of women and girls in the developing world, uplifting the extreme poor, and environmental causes such as preserving biodiversity and saving endangered species.

My most resonant reports have come from countries such as Ethiopia, Nicaragua, Rwanda, Bolivia, Uganda, Vietnam, India, Nepal, and Bhutan. My specialty is bringing compassion and a curious heart to a variety of different projects, plus lending a keen sense of what inspires/captivates an audience.  This is accomplished through video production, public speaking, writing, interviewing, and emceeing.

A broadcast journalist with decades of experience, I can do it all—conceptualize, write, narrate, field produce, direct, shoot, edit and more.      View my resume
