Frankie is a storyteller, teaching artist, and organizer from New Orleans, Louisiana. A recent graduate of The Theatre School at DePaul University, she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Studies, with a concentration in Directing, and a minor in Digital Cinema Production.

While in school she was a co-founder of the DePaul Indigenous Alliance, a Chicago Quarter Mentor, served on the executive board of DePaul Women’s Rugby, and interned at the AIC for the Get Out the Native Vote efforts.

An advocate for Indigenous representation, she believes that art and activism go hand in hand, and all art is political whether we want it to be or not. When she’s not directing, writing, or acting, her main focus is on community engagement and healing through the arts.
