Frances Connolly
Account Coordinator
The Basics:

What is your name/nicknames?
My name is Frances, but most of my friends call me Fran, and my family calls me Franny.

How would you describe your position? 
As an Account Coordinator, I work with our clients directly to ensure all their needs are taken care of, and that they are updated regularly on the progress of their projects. I am also responsible for determining what needs to be done internally to move the projects forward. To sum it up, I am a master of communication and organization!

What are your academic credentials? 
I have a Business Management diploma and a Bachelor of Commerce degree with a major in Marketing, both from MacEwan University

What do you do in your spare time? 
In my free time, you can find me lifting weights in the gym, watching football or basketball, scrolling through social media or hanging out with friends. I am also a musician, so I spend a lot of time singing, playing guitar, playing piano, writing music, and sometimes even hitting up the odd open mic or jam night here in YEG.

Who or what inspires you and why?
I find inspiration everywhere – through the people I encounter, the places I go, and the experiences I have. I am especially inspired by professional athletes who push their capabilities physically and mentally to the limit to be the best possible version of themselves and excel in their sport. I believe this same mentality is applicable to anyone with any goal – if you trust the process and put in the work everyday you can achieve anything. As a musician I am also inspired by artists who are able to channel their experiences, feelings and emotions into music that people can relate to.

The Random:

What was your first car?
A 2006 Ford Fusion, and unfortunately, she’s still getting me from A to B.  The official colour on my registration is “Charcoal Beige”, but I just call it an ambiguous grey because it looks different depending on the lighting.

If you could eat anything right now, what would it be?
A Double-Double burger with Animal Style fries and a chocolate milkshake from In-N-Out. If you know, you know.

What is your biggest guilty pleasure?
Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

What song always makes you happy when you hear it?
Any song by Drake.

If you could have one superhero power, what would it be?
I think it would be awesome to be able to teleport anywhere; I could save so much time and money travelling!
