Fran was born and raised on a farm in Illinois, and moved to Wisconsin when she was 18 years old. She graduated from University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a bachelor's degree in journalism.

Fran has 35 years of experience writing, editing and taking pictures. Before becoming editor of the Wisconsin Agriculturist in 2003, she worked at Johnson Hill Press in Fort Atkinson as a writer and editor of farm business publications and at the Janesville Gazette in Janesville as farm editor and feature writer. Later, she signed on as a public relations associate at Bader Rutter in Brookfield, and served as managing editor and farm editor at The Reporter, a daily newspaper in Fond du Lac.

"I love my job because I'm always meeting new and interesting people," Fran says. "As I travel around the state, I'm learning new and exciting things about agriculture in Wisconsin from the farmers, Extension agents and industry experts I talk to and interview."

Fran and her husband Neil live in Brandon in western Fond du Lac County. They have four grown sons.
