Frances’ love for the night sky started with her family trips to US National Parks. She fondly remembers the park rangers' talks around the campfire.

Soon they were attending the monthly star parties hosted by the Los Angeles Astronomical Society. Frances's interests are public outreach programming and STEM education.
