A true in New Yorker in all senses of the description, although once Luana Graves Sellars moved to Florida, she realized that she had always been "a mis-placed Floridian" who knew that snow and nor’easter’s were not meant for her, especially after her first semester at her almamater, Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. Her double degree in Journalism and Black History with a minor in Business from SIU was the beginning of what she calls her "potpourri career" that included working as a national media buyer for A list clients, a conference speaker on how to achieve Urban radio dollars, in the music industry doing promotions and artist management, a top account manager in radio sales and most recently as the owner and administrative director of two large capacity preschools in Florida. A Gullah community activist, cultural influencer, and preservationist, she has used her skills as a writer to document, educate and promote the culture. The divorced mother of two daughters, Luana has traveled the world extensively, yet spent most of her life coming to Hilton Head for holidays and where has always considered home.
