Penney Van Vleet is a member of the League of Women Voters of Clallam County, Washington. Penney has been president of several local Leagues and served on state boards in Wisconsin and Washington. She managed multiple community and economic development organizations in WI. Penney, along with her mentor, new Leaguers and young mothers, recently conducted a housing survey and won enactment of a Fair Housing Ordinance for Houston, TX.

Penney credits the Shur Fellows experience with providing a new skills set and insights into the camaraderie, support, enthusiasm, and hard work at all three levels of the League. It has been an exciting journey! When there is free time she loves to kayak, read, knit, carve driftwood, and enjoy time with her friends and husband.
