Frankie grew up in San Francisco, delightfully uncovering all of the cultural cuisine the city had to offer. As a child, she and her mother created a shelter meal program, and by thirteen she had assumed her first chef role, leading a team in preparing meals for upwards of 300 homeless men and families per weekend. Professionally, she has worked with chefs including Eric Banh (Monsoon), Tom Douglas (Tom Douglas Restaurants), Zoi Antonistas (Best New Chef, Food & Wine Magazine 2015). She was the former chef de cuisine of Pair and Frank's Oyster House & Champagne Parlor in Seattle. In June 2016, she was shortlisted for Seattle Metropolitan Magazine's Next Hottest Chefs. After a two-year stint in Vancouver, B.C. where she worked on menu consulting and restaurant renovation, Frankie is back in Seattle working as a private chef as well as producing a monthly live painting competition called Seattle Art Battle.
