I had the distinct honor and pleasure of interviewing Penny Furgerson and listening to her impassioned story.

Penny lives a life deeply rooted in love and passion for her family, the arts, pharmacy, and India. After establishing her own independence in India, she made the bold decision to leave her family and apply for scholarships to several universities in the United States in hopes of higher education and simply being able to see the world. This process eventually led her to Drake University and to her husband, Lee. Her curiosity for life is truly inspirational as she embarked on several adventures throughout her journey with a few obstacles and much success.

Here is her story.
