From there she moved to being a full time showgirl at Patch’s Nightclub on Oxford St, Sydney where she stayed happily for over 7 years as part of a dream team of stars, including, Trixie Lamont, Maggie Burns, Poala Negri, Jay Jay Bailey and many more. In this time she started making guest appearances at the world Famous Les Girls.
In 2006 Penny was honoured by winning the prestigious Diva Hall Of Fame, and from this point on Penny’s legendary status was amplified.

Penny is very proud of herself , where she started from, and where she grew too, and feels that her personal journey, still has a long way to go, but hopefully that in the years to come she will experience many new and exciting parts of life!
