Frances recalls that she was in 5th-grade when she was the only one in her class to be able to correctly answer all of the multiplication problems, up to 12 x 12, in under 1 minute, for which she received her first calculator as a prize! Working in the nonprofit sector for more than 20 years has given her an inner satisfaction to know that in some way she is contributing to the needs of others.
She's been married for 37 years to her husband Frank and has 2 children, Elisha and Frank Jr., as well as two granddaughters, Violet and Clover. In her spare time, Frances enjoys gardening and the outdoors. Her other hobbies include camping and having conversations around the campfire, fishing, and boating.
