It all started in 2007 while she was in college. She set up DCBANDAID to provide social media promotion support to DC Metro area musical groups. This effort morphed into social media coordinator and talent handler roles at various Cons from 2014 to the present. These include MagFest, AwesomeCon, KatsuCon, and SpartaCon.

At Katsucon 2016-2017, she moderated social media announcements, relaying information, and responding to customers via social media, funnel requests to the correct topical expert(s), update event schedules, and address questions about ticket purchases, refunds, and events.

Penelope counts actors Sean Patrick Flannery, Norman Reedus, and Manu Bennett among her legion of personal friends and professional contacts. She was the lead talent handler managing all volunteer talent handlers for SpartaCon 2015 and personal assistant to actor Manu Bennett. She was the personal assistant to actor William Shatner at Awesome Con 2015 and performed similar duties at the 2016 event.

In her spare time, Penelope trains as a stunt actor with and serves as the social media coordinator the DC Stunt Coalition. You can see some of her stunt acting movie roles in the IMDB.
