She is among the select 2% of over 60,000 writers from 125 countries who applied for Ron Howard and Brian Grazers IMAGINE ENTERTAINMENT IMPACT opportunities. She is showcased on the IMAGINE Impact platform for consideration by industry professionals.
Her military leadership training has helped her transition into the entertainment business's production side seamlessly.
She has a Masters' degree in Producing Film, Television & Video from American University in Washington, D.C., and a Bachelor's in Nursing with specialty training in Trauma, ER, ICU, and CCU.
Frances is a Soldier for Life. She served in the US Army on active and reserve status for three decades as a senior NCO (E-7) and Officer (MAJ) in the Army Nurse Corps, making her one of the few female “Mustangs.” At Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC/Bethesda, and other assignments, she was honored to care for America’s Wounded Warriors, servicemen and women, Veterans, and their family members.
As a mobilization and training officer, she knows the importance of ensuring Soldiers are trained, ready, cohesive, and well-led to send off to war and return home safely. In 2020 she was called back to active duty and sent overseas to help lead the efforts in the fight against Covid-19.
Frances advocates for the Art of Healing by creating and producing content authentically and respectfully portraying our military community. She facilitates first-look hiring opportunities for our Veterans and Wounded Warriors in performance and off-camera roles to get their stories and talents noticed and their “Boot in the Door.”
She serves on the Advisory Board for Veterans in Media & Entertainment and the GI Film Festival. She is a member of Women in Film, the American Legion Post 43 Hollywood, the Association of the United States Army (AUSA), the George Washington Chapter, the Army Museum, and the Women's Memorial.
She co-produced an award-winning short at the GI Film Festival titled MY VA EXPERIENCE, and was showcased in the VA national campaign, “It Matters.”
Frances volunteers countless hours to help our Veteran community.
