Known locally in Chattanooga as the Networking Ninja – Penny Hughey is an expert at building and cultivating relationships, so what better fit than Penny to be our Director of Partnership Development! If she’s not on a regional campus preparing for camps, you will find her happily engaging partners and vendors alike! As a mother of 3 girls, she knows all too well the importance of helping kids navigate through the all important question of “what do I want to do when I grow up”, and is a firm believer in the belief that if you can find a career doing what you love, then you’ll never “work” a day in your life, like STEAM Society of course! For Penny, that belief is working alongside youth and helping them discover their own talents and passions. She is extremely active in Chattanooga business and leadership circles, and is greatly respected for her knowledge, attitude, and always-smiling face no matter where you see her! As a former banker, she has serious swagger and brings with her, skills that make the rest of the team proud to have our very own rockstar by our side. As a child, when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up her answer was “to be a mom and drive carpool”. She’s driving a lot more than carpool these days, she’s helping to drive kids’ future careers and loving every minute of it. In the words of Yoda, “Always in motion is the future” and Penny is helping to improve it one child at a time.
