Dr. Penny is from a small town in southwest Iowa called Malvern. She wanted to be a doctor until 6th grade when she saw another student's blood during a Math Bee trip. She then wanted to be a lawyer and finally settled, at the time, on being a psychologist. This led her to Iowa State University where she studied Fine Art, Women's Studies, and psychology. In the fall of 2007, she studied in Rome, Italy and hopes to return there one day.
Dr. Penny graduated from Palmer College in October of 2015 after 3 and a third long, hard years of dedication and study. Five weeks later, Dr. Penny opened the doors of Two Lane Chiropractic and started seeing patients. She is currently the only woman Chiropractor in the Historic East Village and for a 3 mile radius. She sits on the Iowa Center for Economic Success's Strategic Advisory Committee as a business owner and on the Young Women’s Resource Center’s Advocacy Committee.
Dr. Penny enjoys yoga, bicycling, as well as walking her poodle, Dalilah, in the great city of Des Moines. She also enjoys the local music scene and the fabulous foodie food Des Moines has to offer with a few of her favorites being A-Dong, The Continental, and The Royal Mile.
