Penny at University of Delaware


Penny Klein has spent her entire professional life as an educator working with high school students. A graduate of Ohio Wesleyan University (BA), Penny first taught English in rural Ohio and then in Zimbabwe, Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer. She earned her Masters in Counseling from Ohio State University. In 1995, she began as a school counselor at Mt. Mansfield Union High School in Jericho, Vermont. During those years, she gained extensive knowledge about the “ins and outs” of the college admissions process. In 2009, Penny left to pursue her passion of helping kids discover who they are, what they want to become and what college environment could offer them a place to grow and thrive. As one of her students said:

“Penny opened my eyes to my options and got me excited about my future.” 

Since the founding of SMCC, she has visited over 250 colleges and universities in the US and Canada. This has provided her with first-hand experience of the institutions to which her students apply. As a Profession Member of The Independent Educational Consultants Association, Penny regularly travels to schools and meets with Admissions counselors and other consultants across the country.   

Penny is also a yoga instructor and teaches classes in her home studio. SMCC students are welcome to attend her yoga classes for free. Read more about Yoga with Penny.

A resident of Essex, Vermont, Penny lives with her husband Don and golden retriever Boots in their hundred year old farmhouse. The house is surrounded by flower gardens, a reflection of another of Penny’s lifelong passions.
