Her work with political candidates is all about creating and maintaining a 'brand' and then communicating that in a manner that builds trust and 'brand' loyalty.

Technically savvy, Fran understands the power of effectively utilizing social media to communicate creative, well-crafted messages across various mediums. Her continued role is that of communicator, decision maker, leader and manager.
