Francie has spent the majority of her thirty year career in private practice, and was a clinical faculty member at West Virginia University from 2001-2006. She moved to Charlotte, NC in 2008 and opened Great Expectations Counseling Services in 2011. She retired from professional counseling in 2019 & loves working with her husband, Kevin, in real estate investing and freelance writing.

“I am lucky to be able to do things I love to do, like writing, traveling, and spending time with my three grandchildren. We must never stop learning and growing. I look forward to the many adventures of the second chapter of my life.”

Francie & Kevin live in Statesville, North Carolina with their two dogs, Gypsy and Bella.
