Frankie’s passion is working with children
to develop their social skills, build confidence in peer interactions, engage in their community, create and maintain friendships, develop their personal goals and identify their own unique communication style.
Frankie has experience in both the public and private health sectors, working holistically with families to create strategies that can be incorporated into their everyday lives. When she’s not working, she enjoys outdoor adventures, spending time with her dogs and checking items off her bucket list.
