Penny Hoffman joined ABC Care in October 2017 as an Assistant. She has three adult children, one is an aspiring musician, one is a recent graduate of Virginia Tech, and one is a Junior at Virginia Tech. When not a work, Penny enjoys, cooking, exercising, and spending time with family and friends. Penny worked for a law firm in Washington, D,C. prior to having children. Penny was a stay-at-home mother until a few years ago. Penny pursued childcare since she wanted to work with children after raising her own. Since being with ABC Care, her passion with working with children has only grown and she continues to learn from her experiences and looks forward to getting to know each and every family.
ABC Care school-based and summer camp programs hire supervisors and staff members who demonstrate necessary experience and skills for working successfully with children, including enthusiasm, compassion, patience, and respect.
