After she walked the Camino de Santiago, solo, in 2017, Fran became uncomfortable with descriptions such as 'brave' and 'inspirational' when people learned about her epilepsy diagnosis. She created Seize Your Adventure to normalise the idea of epilepsy in adventure. As host, editor and producer, she collates all audio and visual content on the podcast, website and social media.
Frankie is a passionate surfer, but she has suffered frequent and debilitating seizures that stopped her from surfing entirely for years. She is currently studying for a degree in International Disaster Management, Humanitarian Response and Spanish at the University of Manchester. Frankie is the fuel behind the Seize Your Adventure YouTube.
