Penny’s Bio

I am an RN in good standing and I became a nurse because I love working with the elderly in my neighborhood. Recently I have been working at summer camps and Summer Schools in Vermont. I have worked in public health and in primary care clinics with children. I provide basic care, medication management, meal preparation, housekeeping, transportation and TLC. I enjoy working with young children and providing security, acceptance, fun Recreation and light education. I have been a nurse since 1993 and have worked all over the world. Before my nursing career I received a bachelor's in agriculture and Horticulture from Virginia Tech. I had a landscape business in North Carolina. It is now my avocation.
