Fran is a brilliant, hardworking and resourceful assistant producer with excellent self shooting skills and great technical awareness on shoots. She also has a lovely sense of humour, is great with contributors and a terrific addition to any team. It was a delight to work with her and I really hope to do so again soon.

Sarah Sarkhel

Fran is technically gifted, editorially thoughtful and a delight to work with. She's a team player, great with colleagues and presenters. One to watch.

Amanda Lyon

Fran is a wonderful addition to any team; smart, talented, creative, dedicated, and extremely hard-working. She's a hot property - hire her if you can.

Jane Fitzgerald

Fran is one of the best researchers I've had the pleasure to work with. When we worked together on 'Trust Me I'm a Doctor' she did an amazing job in first recruiting dozens of volunteers for various experiments, and then ensuring they kept going with whatever it was we were asking them to do that particular week. I had total faith that she was fully across all the many logistical details, but also trusted that she could self-shoot important sequences and GV's with contributors on her own. She's great at coming up with creative visual ideas as well as having the ability to get to grips with really complex science, all while charming contributors and work colleagues alike. Great person to share a post-shoot beer with as well. Hope we get to work together again soon!

Maurice O'Brien

Fran is one of those researchers that you can throw anything at, and she will solve it - whether that's finding locations, stories, or random props. She's extremely conscientious and dedicated to her job, and is also a talented self-shooter.

Alex Freeman, SP - Trust Me, I'm a Doctor

I worked with Fran for several weeks on Stargazng Live. She proved herself to be a hard working, diligent and conscientious member of the team. She was confident researching advanced concepts in astronomy and translating them into language that was easier for the rest of the team to digest.

Duncan Williamson, Producer
