A native New Orleanian, Frances grew up between New Orleans and Coastal Mississippi. She graduated with a B.S. in psychology from Spring Hill College with a double minor in history and philosophy. Her research interests, though still developing, include LGBTQ+ mental health as it pertains to the societal attitudes of being a part of this community in the Southern United States.

In her spare time, Frances enjoys reading, singing, and spending time with her animals.
