A native of the Albany/Sylvester area, Penny received her Associate of Science in Nursing from Albany Junior College. Upon graduation, Penny began her nursing career at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Pediatrics, then transferred to labor and delivery. Instantaneous “true love” for obstetrics led to continued education and a degree as a midwife.
Penny is married to Dennis Champion. Combined they are blessed with 5 children and 8 grandchildren. With grandchildren and a large family farm, which include cattle, there isn’t a lot of time for hobbies. They are active members of Salem Baptist Church in Worth County.
Penny feels very blessed to have found an area of nursing that she loves so much early on in her career. She says obstetrics is truly the “best job on earth.”
