Penny King, Project Manager, PMO

In her free time, Penny enjoys helping youth with job and career management.

Penny King recently joined the Project Management Office after spending the previous ten years in Emory’s Enrollment Services Division, where she was a senior financial aid advisor in the Financial Aid Office.

A native of Atlanta who attended Columbia High School, Penny has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from American Intercontinental University and a master’s degree in conflict management from Kennesaw State University. She is also certified in paralegal studies (Clayton State University) and carries her CAPM certification from the Project Management Institute.

Penny likes to write short stories and poems and hopes to publish them one day. She also loves exercise, including climbing Stone Mountain once a week, dancing, and doing Zumba classes at Emory. Penny loves zombie movies and TV shows, and once dressed as a professional zombie for The Walking Dead Experience. 

Penny likes to volunteer a lot! Currently she is working with a non-profit, where she is assisting them with grant research. In the past, a lot of her volunteer opportunities have been with helping youth with job and career management. She also started a mentoring program at her prior position.

“The support in the PMO has been overwhelming,” said Penny. “It feels like home already and the other PMs have given me very positive feedback. I am excited.”
