I’ve been baking most of my life. I studied both my grandmothers and have come up with my own unique but similar style… So uhm, the following picture requires no explanation except to say, clearly I wasn’t paying close enough attention to the conversion chart. And, it tastes better than it looks, LOL.

Born in raised in Sacramento, California, I attended Mark Hopkins Elementary and H.W. Harkness Elementary. I later attended Capital Christian Academy and Valley High School. My father raised me as a single parent with the help of my grandparents. Though I lost my maternal grandmother in 2013 and my father in 2014, I remain grounded in their love and support. My paternal grandmother turned 93 this month and is still as wise and as beautiful as ever. I attended Florida A&M University after being recruited by the GREAT Sybil C. Mobley, Ph.D. I fondly remember my time at FAMU--being an SBIan, interning at Honeywell International (Newton Heights-Boston) and Federated Department Stores (Miami), pledging Delta Sigma Theta and graduating ON TIME as an Economics major with a minor in business administration. After working as an operations management trainee, a sales representative, and in other roles for Fortune 500 companies, I returned to graduate school and completed a Ph.D. in Marketing with a concentration in Communication at Florida State University. I since have taught at Elon College, Johnson C. Smith University, and Florida A&M University. It has been my pleasure to teach and interact with young people as a professor. They keep me young and teach me so many things... My consulting experiences include GlaxoSmithKline and Qwest Communications. I have also served as marketing program coordinator, retail program coordinator, and Chief District Legislative Assistant for Senator Al Lawson, Jr. during his term as Minority Leader. My volunteer activities include serving as a Research Specialist for U.S AID in Nicaragua, service to my son's school and my church, St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church among a number of other volunteer activities. I love to travel and have taken students on study abroad trips, some funded out of my own pocket. It pleases me to have been the catalyst for the love of travel for so many of my students. My international travels include Aruba, Bahamas, Belgium, Belize, Canada, Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Honduras, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Panama, Singapore, South Africa, Swaziland, and United Arab Emirates. So many destinations await... so little time off work. ;) View all posts by Annette the Cali Fulbright to the Swazis
