Carol Pennington’s connection with Keystone Autism Services began five years ago when her adult son became a participant in the ACAP program. When ACAP came along, Carol was impressed by both the professionalism of the staff and the flexible nature of the services. Up to this time, it had been difficult to get appropriate services that provided what her son needed in order to lead a fuller, more satisfying and independent life. ACAP’s services, on the other hand, have been just right.

Carol retired from the Public Utility Commission in 2010 after practicing public utility law for twenty-three years. While at the Commission, and also at the Office of Small Business Advocate, she worked as a prosecutor in public utility rate cases. In her more recent years of practice, she worked in an advisory capacity with the Commission. Carol received her JD from The Dickinson School of Law and her BS in math education from Penn State University.

Carol also serves on ACAP’s Advisory Board and on the Board of Trustees of the Joseph T. Simpson Library in Mechanicsburg. She has also served in several different board positions with the Harrisburg Branch of the American Association of University Women.
