Pennie Parker—director of athletics at Rollins College and the treasurer of Women Leaders in College Sports—is so well-known in athletics, you may think she has spent her entire career in the industry, but that’s not so. After graduating from the University of Georgia, she went into banking, but eventually made her way to three Division I compliance programs – Georgia, Jacksonville University, and Florida State.

Pennie is married to a NASA engineer, so the couple relocated to Orlando to be closer to the Kennedy Space Center. She worked her network—a good reminder that it’s not who you know; it’s who knows you and is willing to go to bat for you—to earn a spot at Division II Rollins College, where she’s been for 16 total years, 12 as the director of athletics!
