Bridget Penick - Board Member

Bridget is a mother of four daughters, all of whom are musically inclined, but only one brave soul in the bunch has been a Rocker… so far.  She began working with Girls Rock! by joining its advisory committee in December 2014 and has served on its board of directors since it was formally established in February 2015.  Bridget’s formal training is in the law (Central College undergrad and University of Iowa Law School) and she serves as a legal advisor to Girls Rock!  Bridget attributes her ability to multitask, face the anxiety of the courtroom, and display confidence and poise in large part to her years of dance, band, and theater growing up, and she would have jumped at the chance to participate in an organization like GirlsRock if it had existed. As one of three sisters and the mother of four daughters, Bridget wholeheartedly believes in and supports GirlsRock because of its commitment to empower girls through music and help each individual develop her unique strengths and talents.
