Penny is thrilled to join the Board for the Central Coast Conservatorium. She plays the violin and strongly believes in the benefits music can bring to develop and bind the community. For Penny, her interest in music extends to a belief that music further enhances and stimulates creativity, can create an instant mood like few other arts and be mood enhancing. To her, it also has the capacity to inspire people to come together in a magical way. Penny is looking forward to her work with the Board and with the central coast community. Penny is an experienced legal professional who currently works for the NSW government. For 8 years she worked as a legal adviser to the British government in London. Prior to this, she provided legal advice to the United Nations in West Africa. Penny holds a bachelor of laws, a master of laws and also an arts degree. She specialises in governance and procedures and has developed and has implemented significant strategic operational procedures for the NSW government. Five years ago she moved to the Hunter Valley and is currently working in mining regulation; she is one of the few female mining inspectors in NSW.
We seek to inspire our Central Coast community to engage in and value music as an integral part of life through comprehensive music education and artistic endeavour.
