Penelope Rozhkova lives the Frank Sonnenberg quote, “As you climb your ladder of success, reach down and pull others along with you.” She was a founding member of two college WiCyS chapters and of the WiCyS Latina Affiliate. While Penelope holds a Masters in Education Administration, she is a career-changer as an Ivy Tech MUTC CyberAcademy graduate. Previously she worked in a K-12 setting, where she hired for district-wide roles, and then moved into a business setting, where she hired individuals for her own office staff. She has presented workshops on financial education in both corporate and non-profit settings. She has worked with individuals as well as in train-the-trainer programs to share best practices in both the fields of education and financial services, and now in cybersecurity. Although she is young in her cybersecurity career, she is well-versed in navigating group dynamics and mentoring future leaders. As an educator at heart, within cybersecurity, it is among her goals to share her previous experience as a leader while she grows her technical skills in the field, which she will undoubtedly end up teaching along the way as she reaches back to pull those up behind her.
