Fran is a hometown gal who grew up at Crystal Lake, PA and took up the game of golf early at the age of 5. Her family has been longtime members of Elkview Country Club where Fran won the Club championship at 16 years old. Fran was the first female in Pennsylvania permitted to play on an all boys high school golf team after she campaigned to be allowed to compete.
After graduation she headed out west to play year round golf on a travel tour for a couple years hitting such famous spots as Pebble Beach, Spyglass, and Riviera CC. Fran ended up staying in California for the next 25 years.
After running a successful youth program in her hometown, she is now back in Roseville, CA teaching golf at Diamond Oaks Golf Course. Fran is an affiliate member of USGTF ( United States Golf Teachers Federation). She continues to be passionate about the game of golf and looks forward to sharing her knowledge and experience with others.
