Franziska (Fran) Tamas, Office Manager
FRPC is a medical clinic and a pregnancy resource center. Therefore, many important types of communication and information must be handled efficiently and with confidentiality. Fran has a compassionate interest in our clients’ progress and so she goes the extra mile in helping locate resources for both clinic and client needs. We are funded by individuals in the community who believe real choices require real support. Fran helps us show our appreciation to the many donors who give to the center so that every woman who comes through our door can be given high quality care and support without cost to herself. Fran has a BS in Biology and an MS in Environmental Science, Paralegal Certification through George Mason University and Teacher training certification through Shenandoah University. She is an archery instructor and enjoys horseback riding.
