About the Author

I am a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and most importantly a child of God. I love to travel and spend time with family. At 55 years of age,  I am a recently retired Air Traffic Controller who worked for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) over 32 years. I have worked Radar Positions at the busiest Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) in the world, Atlanta ARTCC in Hampton, Ga. I was the first African American female in the history of Atlanta ARTCC to be selected as a Front-Line Manager (FLM) in 1994. I have worked in various FAA Staff Positions and I was an FAA Academy Instructor. I have a Master of Science Degree in Space and Aviation Technology from Oklahoma State University and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from Miles College in Fairfield, Alabama. I used the two degrees and set out on this new path. I pray that this journey will be as rewarding and fulfilling as my last.
