About Us

Ginny Albert and Michael Wyatt founded Our Time 21st Century Seniors, Inc. in 2014 in an effort to empower the older population to realize their potential for continued success. Each of the staff and board members at the organization encountered their own challenges throughout life, and came away from those challenges with more understanding and knowledge to share with the community. Through engaging workshops, presentations and other activities, Our Time illustrates how the older population continues to provide meaningful contributions to society.
Meet Our Board

Chris Crenshaw
Chairman of the Board

Chris stays involved by facilitating and organizing events such as reading plays and giving presentations on entrepreneurship. Chris also belongs to civic organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce and Million Dollar Roundtable.

Dr. Diane K. Dunn
Vice Chairwoman

Diane Dunn is a retired English Language Arts teacher and worked in the DeKalb County School District for 22 years.  She taught students with special needs for 14 years and spent the remainder of her career serving as an ELA Instructional Coach for assigned schools in DeKalb County.  She also provided professional learning workshops to teachers, administrators, and students.  Diane has a fervent desire to help seniors become life-long learners by offering workshops that are engaging mentally, physically and spiritually. This desire was spurned by the loss of her mother to Alzheimers at the age of 100.  She firmly believes that after seniors retire, they should re-fire, and be rejuvenated.

Margaret McBride
Treasurer

With a background in nursing with the US Air Force and Atlanta VA Medical Center, Margaret offers education and information to seniors about medications, chronic illness management
and other tips to improve their quality of life.

Ms. Mikkayla Dickerson
Board Member

Mikkayla is a native of Louisville, KY. She currently works at a State facility detox and psychological stabilization unit where she assists in enhancing patient care. She holds a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Biblical Studies with a multicultural background and focus on community collaboration. Mikkayla has participated in a number of volunteer opportunities and has served in leadership roles for all ages. She became aware of the need to protect and provide loving companionship to our senior citizens after caring for her Grandparents, who were both diagnosed with dementia. Her goal is to make sure that our elderly counterparts are not “forgotten” in the community.

Ms. Fanette Pitts
Board Member/Secretary

Fanette Aimee Pitts recently joined Our Time 21st Century Seniors, Inc. as a Board Member and Recording Secretary.  From early childhood, Fanette was immersed in the arts.  Her activities included African dance, ballet, tap, and acting.  She also enjoys playing chess, trivia, and word games. At the age of five, she voiced a desire to become a master hairstylist.  She fulfilled this dream immediately after high school by attending Capelli — one of the then most popular schools of cosmetology.  She plied her skills at several high-end salons, and was known for her signature styles and cuts.

Fanette had a loving relationship with her maternal grandmother, and profited from the knowledge, wisdom and family history until her grandmother’s death in 1998.  Since then, she has fostered a keen interest in Our Time 21st Century Senior, Inc.’s progress.   As a tribute to her grandmother, Fanette put forth her name for consideration to become a board member of OT.  She was voted in unanimously.  One of the younger members, Fanette is well-rounded, and has vast insights and talents to share with the board, staff and clients of Our Time 21st Century Seniors, Inc.

She is a loving mother to Jason, 10, and Amira 1-1/2.
