Penny’s background as a professional makeup artist honed her eye for fine detail which informs her work as a wine and travel writer and photographer. Working in film and television introduced her to the elite of the travel industry including Richard Branson, Southwest Airlines CEO Herb Kelleher, Colleen Barrett, and current Southwest CEO Gary Kelly; this inspired her to write about her own travel adventures.
In 2015 she obtained her WSET level 2 certification, an internationally recognized credential in wine and spirits. This led her to a 2000 year old wine cave in France as well as many other wine infused adventures. She has a special fondness for Italy, where beauty is simply part of every day life.
