Meet the real-life Annie

Annie, our virtual advance care planning facilitator, was named after Annie Easley, who was born April 23, 1933 in Birmingham, Alabama. Annie was a female African-American computer scientist, mathematician and rocket scientist. In 1955, an article in the local paper about twins who were human computers at a company called NACA piqued Annie’s interest, and she soon had a position there as a computer at the Lewis Research Centre.

Annie went on to become a leading member of the team which developed software for the Centaur rocket stage, as well as other alternative power technology projects and was one of the first African-Americans to work as a computer scientist at NASA.

Annie also tutored and actively encouraged females to consider STEM careers. Annie retired in 1989 but continued to work with the Speaker’s Bureau and the Business & Professional Women’s Association until her death in 2011.
