Penny graduated from Sheffield Hallam University and then went on to study for a Post Graduate qualification at the University of West Sussex in Human Resource Management, where she was also able to gain her chartered status with the Institute of Personnel and Development.
Penny has had a successful career in HR and has worked across a number of diverse industries including airlines, road transport and rail; which means she literally has been involved with ‘Planes, Trains and Automobiles’! Penny has also had the opportunity to work within the public sector, rejoining Sheffield Hallam University as an employee and Human Resources Manager.
Penny currently holds a senior Human Resources position and is a member of the Executive Group for a division within the rail industry. She has responsibility for all HR functions within the business, which covers a large territory across Scotland and the East Coast of England.
As a child Penny was an active rider, in her native Yorkshire, and rode throughout her childhood years in the local riding school.
Since moving to Scotland she has rekindled her passion for all things equine and is actively seeking to use her role at HRS to improve the lives and welfare of horses throughout Scotland, but also the lives of everyone who comes into contact with them.
Penny lives with her husband and stepdaughter in Glasgow, both of whom also have a keen interest and passion for horses.
