Penny established many relationships with dental office clients who remain with us today, all the while recruiting, interviewing and referring hundreds of dental personnel throughout the East Bay. In 2011, Penny became the owner of Ondonte along with her sister, Sue Melton. The two sisters worked together through 2015 when Sue Melton purchased the rapidly growing business. For the next four years, Penny was able to spend time with her beloved Arabian mare, Crystal, riding the East Bay trails, exploring Monument Valley, Utah on horseback, horse camping in the Sierra, and traveling with her husband of 47 years fly fishing the iconic rivers of the West. Penny is now back with Ondonte to continue her odyssey once again recruiting, developing long-standing friendships and relationships, and relishing those very special words, “I got the job!”
