Penelope Palopoli: Owner/ Sonographer of Little Life Imaging
Penny has lived in Florida since she was 3 years old. She is the oldest of 4 children and has a son and a daughter. She also has 2 adorable granddaughters. She is married and lives in Clermont. She attended Valencia State College and received her Degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography in 2001. She was hired by the hospital in her last semester of school and worked there for 17years. In 2002 she was recruited to go to work at an OB/Gyn Office that was starting out. That office later grew to have 8 Offices which she oversaw all the Ultrasound techs, and was responsible for all their training, as well as teaching students from local ultrasound schools.
In 2013 she bought Little Life Imaging from her dear friend Tracy, promising her that she’d run the business the way she would be proud of. Tracy started the business in 2007 and was moving to Rhode Island and didn’t want to sell her “Baby” to just anybody. It became apparent to Penny that the OB office was becoming too busy to allow the moms to truly bond with their baby the way they used to, so by moving out on her own, this was her way to help the moms get that time back with their baby. She has tried to keep her prices down so that all moms can enjoy the special gift of bonding with their baby. She does her best to create that comfortable atmosphere to make everyone feel at home. Penny is Board Certified in OB/Gyn, Abdomen, Small Parts, Breast, and NT Ultrasounds.

Rosie Moore: Owner/ Doula of Windermere Baby and Family Wellness Center.
Rosie came from a background of being a legal nurse, disease management nurse, and worker’s comp case manager, but after many years in corporate America, she decided that her love of people was more important. She pursued her Doctorate of Nurse Practice so that she can develop a transition program for parents of premature babies while their baby was in the neonatal intensive care unit. Her own experience of having a premature baby, and her compassion for others going through the same struggles lead her to start a non-profit called The Gift of Life. An organization that supports and empowers the parents and families of premature babies. Rosie is blessed with a wonderful husband and three beautiful children.
