Community leader, mom and finance executive looks to continue her service to Seminole County
Lake Mary, Fla. (February 1, 2018) – Amy Pennock has spent her professional career giving back to the Seminole County community. From serving on multiple boards of non-profits to volunteering for her daughter’s softball team, Pennock has made a difference in her community.
Today, Pennock stepped up to the plate again, filing as a candidate to represent District 4 on the Seminole County School Board. She is the first candidate to file for any school board race in Seminole County.
“With three daughters in public school, it is a passion of mine to ensure they and all the children of Seminole County continue to receive the greatest education in Central Florida,” Pennock says. “Our school district is the envy of Central Florida and I want to work with the community to ensure that continues.”
As the owner of Pennock Consulting Group, Pennock works for companies across the country, including the non-profit Shepherd’s Hope, providing outsourced Chief Financial Officer services. Prior to forming her small business in 2011, Amy held senior financial management positions in healthcare and construction, including Controller at Cathcart Contracting, Administrative Services Director at Florida Department of Health, and Assistant Controller at Osceola Regional Medical Center.
In the community, Pennock currently is the president-elect for Florida Executive Women and serves on the board of Goodwill of Central Florida and the Seminole County Regional Chamber of Commerce. She was the 2015-2017 event chair of Second Harvest Food Bank’s Wine Women & Shoes, which has raised over $1 million to help provide food for Central Floridians in need. She founded the Seminole Chamber’s State of the City in Lake Mary.
Pennock is married to Tim, and has three daughters, Madison and twins Savannah and Delaney. She has volunteered as “room mother” and serves on the board of the PTSA at Crystal Lakes Elementary School. She also is the team manager for Madison’s softball team, the Renegade Girls, who play in the Lake Mary Little League.
“One of the primary reasons I serve the community is to be a role model for my daughters on the importance of giving back,” Pennock says. “Serving on the School Board would truly be an honor.”
The District 4 seat is becoming available as the current school board member, Amy Lockhart, is running for Seminole County Commissioner. Pennock has filed in the 2020 election, but will run in the 2018 election once the seat is officially vacated.
