My name is Frances but I go by Fran, Franny or Franimal. At 25, I am a graduate of Loyola University Chicago with majors in marketing and international business. I am originally from the great state of Wisconsin, but for the last three years I was based in la città eterna, Rome, Italy. I just moved back to the USA and am battling through reverse culture shock.

I like to consider myself a travel aficionado and I thoroughly enjoy helping others see the world in a sustainable way. I currently work as a trip designer for Journy, a startup travel company that promotes seeing the world like a traveler, not a tourist.

I am rarely found without my camera, and I swear by a healthy mixture of coffee & naps. Running and reading are a part of my daily routine, and I believe adventure can be found right outside the front door.
