About Me

I spent thirty-five years in education, specializing in governance and state education policy. A graduate of Howard University and former Executive Director of the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE), education is at the core of my professional and personal passions.


Coming from a close-knit family that revered the memory of our ancestors; and cherishing a fondness for history, writing my first book was a labor of love. The Time Travels of Annie Sesstry is brimming with factual accounts of the periods of slavery and reconstruction and is based on my family’s determination to find their roots and know their history.
