President Frank Love is a loving husband, father of six, speaker, podcaster, blogger, vlogger and coach. He is the author of How to Gracefully Exit a Relationship and the soon to be released 25 Ways to Be Loving. A native of Washington, D.C., Frank has degrees from both Howard and George Washington Universities but no formal training in mental health or
relationship dynamics. However, one completed marriage, one current marriage, and years of observing relationships has taught him much about the challenges that couples face around loyalty, trust and partnerships. These observations led him to question his own motives and methods. After years of research, writing and inquiry, he has concluded that romantic, past romantic and co-parenting partnerships tend to be filled with behaviors that are anything but loving—from score-keeping, to martyrdom, to blaming and shaming. Confident that there are numerous examples of effective co-parenting between no-longer romantically involved couples, Frank in committed to highlighting and celebrating these individuals. It is his hope and belief that these efforts will inspire past-couples that are raising a child(ren) together to work together to create similar dynamics between their co-parenting unit.
Erika Asikoye Erika Asikoye was born and raised in a small New Jersey town. The youngest of four, she
recalls early messages from her parents about the importance of caring for the family,
the larger definition of what family is and service to the community. These values
coupled with an emphasis on exposure created an activity-filled childhood. From school
athletics to church & community events—being engaged was always celebrated.
Now as a parent and an educator, Erika pedals this same philosophy. She is an advocate
for activities that introduce young people to new considerations. From her days with
the Philadelphia Freedoms Schools program to her tenure with the SEED Schools in
Washington and Maryland, she enjoys creating programs where young people gain a
better understanding of themselves and the world around them. Erika attended Howard University for undergrad and Harvard University for graduate
school. She has a bright and curious three-year old son, a step son and daughter as well
as a village of nieces and nephews related by blood and deep bonds of long-time
friendships. Erika is completing her first year the Interim Co-Head of School at the SEED School of
Maryland. Whenever possible she travels internationally to Kenya where her husband is
from and hopes to see more of the continent with each visit.
